Driven by the dark berry jam notes of our Phinny Hill syrah and the compelling savory spice character of syrah from our Rockgarden Estate, this lush and juicy wine is the finest Wildebeest we have ever made. Cabernet sauvignon and franc add to the compelling structure of this noble BEAST, with malbec contributing lovely floral and red berry notes, and a dash of mourvèdre adding complexity. Throughout, firm tannins, alluring aromatics and a creamy texture underscore this wine's purity and power.

Wine AdvocateAlways a solid value, the 2012 Beast Wildebeest is an almost kitchen-sink blend of 41% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec and the rest Mourvedre. It offers lots of spice, dried herbs, flowers and sweet cherry and black raspberry fruit to go with a ripe, rounded, silky, medium-bodied feel on the palate.

Wine EnthusiastThis is an unusual blend of 41% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec and 6% Mourvèdre from Phinny Hill and Rock Garden Estate vineyards. Aromas of green pepper, orange peel, earth, dried herbs and cherry lead to plump, mouthwatering savory flavors.
