|James Halliday 95|
| Strong dark fruits of plum and blackberry provide the rich inky aromatic profile
expected in the Beast, combining with an array of chocolates and savoury spices.
These rich inky fruits flow from nose through to mouth, filling the entire palate
where supple/ripe fruit tannins combine with oak driven dusty notes that provide
complexity. As always with the Beast, layers of beautifully balanced fruit and oak
fill out the back palate and provide fantastic length. Overall, a hugely rich and
intense palate with the underlying soft side for which the Hentley Farm vineyard
is known. An outstanding vintage for wines of this style, and the 2010 Beast
certainly won’t let you down! Drink now or in the next 20 - 30 years.
