Toasted Head estate vineyards are located in Yolo's Dunnigan
Hills, on the eastern side of California's Coast Range Mountains, one of California's original 27 counties, which has stayed a rural oasis that is now home to a large community of artists and craftspeople, as well as California's greatest concentration of organic farmers.
Toasted Head Chardonnay 2010
This Chardonnay has aromas of bourbon, butterscotch, white peach and Asian pear. On the palate, creamy toast and peachy caramelized custard flavors are complimented with a clean, hot finish. Barrel fermentation and aging is obvious in the wine, with a full, broad finish. Braised meats
like lamb shank, pork loin, smoked salmon, or pasta with a cajun cream sauce.

Toasted Head Untamed Red 2012
32% Petit Verdot, 31% Syrah, 25% Syrah, 12% Petit Sirah. Toasted Head chose warm-climate Syrah and Petite Sirah
from their Dunnigan Hills estate vineyards to contribute dense, dark berry fruit flavors, structure and floral notes to this unconventional blend.
They also turned to north coast Zinfandel to provide soft strawberry and raspberry fruit along with natural acidity.
Aromas of dark berry fruits (dark cherry, blackberry), graham cracker, and lightly floral with oak showing as cedar, spice and vanilla. This wine is bright and fruit driven with a moderate structure and soft cinnamon-infused finish. As a medium-to-light weight wine with good acidity, think of pairing the 2012 Untamed Red with your grill: as in grilled chicken, ribs, or portabellas. It’s also a big winner with Margarita-style thin-crust pizza. This is an incredibly versatile and friendly wine.

Studies indicate that the grape used for making California Zinfandel probably originated in Croatia. Historians believe that in the 1820s a nursery owner brought Zinfandel cuttings that were Croatian in origin to the United States from an Austrian collection. The Zinfandel name, however, is truly American. Zinfandel is exclusively grown in California and is the most widely planted red grape variety. It offers an array of flavors including black and red fruit, spice, pepper, tar, licorice and wood.
