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