With a name like “The Beast” and 14.8 alc, I was expecting a big boy sipper like the Aussie bombs of yesteryear. But after a 2 hour decant, I found a decent balanced blend of mostly Syrah and Cab Sauv with a couple other grapes (?). I tasted more of the cab, vanilla and blue fruits. Kinda like a baby Napa Cab, not quite a beast, but maybe a creature. Like Son of Godzilla. Remember when Godzilla was teaching his son how to breathe his atomic laser beam? But he could only blow a smoke ring until Godzilla stepped on his tail. I dig this wine and was going to score 3+. But at $13.99, I’ll step on the tail for an extra boost to a 4-

I'll step on the tail. Reminded me of a more refined version of Ravenswood Besieged. Not quite a beast, but not timid. Definitely a bargain.
