Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

65% Shiraz, 35% Grenache

Deep black with a red hue. Lifted notes of dusted sweets, chocolate, lavender and freshly cut herbs.

Good intensity with excellent ripe and vibrant red fruit flavors with hints of white pepper. A velvety smooth structured wine with soft approachable dry tannins. Brave Faces is an excellent food wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Shiraz (60%) – Grenache (40%) "Brave Faces" is slightly muted aromatically but notes of cedar, spice box, and blueberry make an appearance. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with ample bright fruit focused on the Grenache component. Supple-textured, and well-balanced, the wine is slightly compact in the finish. "
89 Points

"Shiraz provides the structure and the blackberry fruits, allowing the grenache to add its note of sweet red fruit; nicely composed."
