Toasted Head

Toasted Head
I have a thing about wine labels. I just find some of them very interesting. This offering from R.H. Phillips has always amused me with its playful fire-breathing circus bear. It doesn't pair very well with food, (the wine, not the bear) but is quite nice to drink at cocktail hour. If you enjoy a big, oaky Chardonnay, this one is pretty okay. (I meant that to rhyme).

That image of the fire breathing bear just doesn't sell it for me. I looked through several of your recent posts. Love the colors and variety. Keep up the great work.

Sometimes I buy the wine just because I like the label. This label has always amused me.

I love wine labels too. You captured this one very well. I actually went wine tasting yesterday and took a bunch of photos of the wine bottles. I haven't posted any of them though.

I love the name - it's how you feel after drinking a bottle!
