Hentley Farm The Beast 2020 Shiraz has black fruit characters, combined with an array of spices and dark chocolate and tobacco on this dense nose. Traditional Beast has grippy tannins that line the front of the palate with Christmas pudding and forest berries through the middle creating layers of luscious fruit and intensity. Spices and chocolate return in the back to provide length that competes with the best vintages of this wine.
