Deep black with a red hue. A lifted bouquet of rose oil, wet ash, mint, clove, fresh strawberries, potpourri and butchers shop notes. The palate starts out with excellent
persistence, richness and drive then floats into enticing red fruit and savory flavors. The finishing dryness perfectly marries the succulent fruit and creates a style change that's even better with food.
"The purple-colored 2007 Shiraz (64%)-Grenache (18%)-Mataro (18%) Brave Faces was aged in seasoned oak. It reveals earth notes, game, black cherry, and blueberry leading to a smooth-textured, forward, succulent wine with good grip and length. Drink it over the next five years."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright colour; ripe raspberry, blackberry and thyme bouquet; medium-bodied palate, with ample sweet fruit, complemented by savoury wild herb complexity; quite zesty acidity on the finish.
