Neil Ellis "Sincerely" 2008 Shiraz (South Africa), $8.99-$14.99, 83 points, was an opaque maroon grading bright red into the wine ring.
Smells of earth, blackberry, coffee, and fresh linen were just okay.
Near full-bodied, fair acidity, and resolved tannin carried a rather flat flavor profile of chalky plum, blackberry, and a savory note.
Finished fair with a tangy plum, a scintilla of spice and an innocuous 14% alcohol.
Just a note to the age of this Shiraz, and that is it's just beyond the proper dinking age, yet still potable.
