Vintages Wine Panel: The name Toasted Head refers to the barrels in which this wine is aged. Common practice is to char only the barrelwalls, but in this case the heads are toasted too which imparts a more rich, toasty character to the wine. This Shiraz offers bountiful black cherry flavors with nicely integrated notes of cocoa and cedar. My note: A solid value for this smoky, full-bodied red with dense black fruit notes.

Shiraz food pairings: red meats, spicy pasta.
