Hentley Farm The Beast Shiraz 2013
On the nose the wine has dense dark fruits, black olive, tapenade, and earthy aromas.
Black fruits persist on the palate; particularly blackberries bursting from the mid palate.
Tannin profile is prominent, particularly at the front, but does not detract from the great length.
The oak is well balanced and provides notes of toasted coconut and almonds
Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz The Beast has an earthy/gamey nose with dried mulberries and preserved plums at the core, morphing into spice box, sandalwood and peppery notes. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and a full-on "beast," as the name suggests, it is actually very delicious and has real depth with many layers coming through on the impressively long finish.
Wine SpectatorRich and powerful, featuring toffee and espresso accents to the licorice, plum and blackberry flavors, with thick, sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins. Mineral and dried floral details emerge on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2030. 970 cases made.
