Deep black in color with a slight red hue. Fireworks on the bouquet with rhubarb, Asian spices, intense, fresh cut flower, warm oil and roasted meats, this is extremely 'animal' on the nose. The palate is concentrated and powerful with a lovely open texture of sweet and rounded fruits, you can
see the transparency of all three varietals at play here and it makes the wine interesting and different, as they all end on a seamless note.
The tannins of the Mataro kick in on the mid palate and pulls the Grenache and Shiraz through on a long ride to a sweet and rounded tannin that is
clean, dry and peppery. A contrasting style to the original Brave Faces, which was Shiraz/Grenache, the 2008 seems to show a little more interest
