Six hats-South Africa-2009 Shiraz, $10.10-$11.99, 86+ points, appeared as a bright purple/red with a slight pink tint and a broad clear rim.
A rather leathery/earthy nose with a whiff of violets was just okay for me.
The medium body carried fair acidity and mild tannin with a bounty of strawberry and red cherry flavors which tapered into a somewhat short finish of little spice, a hint of mint, and well integrated alcohol (14%).
Six Hats Shiraz has a role to play as a fair red table wine (paired well with an Australian grass-fed rib-eye).
