2012 Toasted Head Untamed Red

Greeting on this rainy Sunday afternoon.  The cold Autumn breezes have blown in some Fall weather. Don't worry about me though, I have a nice Red Blend to keep me warm.  This one is the 2012 vintage Toasted Head Untamed Red, produced by the Mondavi folks.

Had a glass of this last night as the Trick or Treaters were driving me crazy and the wine was a bit tart and hot.  Let it open up a bit and get oxygenated and today it is a tad mellower.  Nice earthy notes in this one, but not enough fruit to even it out for me.  The blend is predominately Syrah with a bit of Zinfandel, Petit Syrah and Tempranillo thrown in.  Not my favorite red blend, but this one is a bargain at 10 smackers.
