Good nose of blueberry muffin and shiraz tones, but with a little barnyard. Sugary, syrupy on the palate. Too sweet for me. Read more

Delicious, fruity, peppery, pencil shavings, wonderful nose. Outstanding Shiraz for a good price. Just an outstanding effort and it's young yet. Wait a couple years, it'll knock your socks off.

Decanted 1 hour. Big nose of blueberry and pepper. First taste straight from the bottle was a fruit attack. LOTS of fruit! Time spent in the decanter settled the wine down a lot, and it became quite good. Sweet berry fruit, smooth tannins that integrate well with the heavy acidity, and just a hint of alcohol heat on the finish. Recommended by a friend, and I'm in agreement. A "gnarly" Aussie Shiraz, dude! Outstanding - 91 points.

Good nose of blueberry muffin and shiraz tones, but with a little barnyard. Sugary, syrupy on the palate. Too sweet for me.

Visually it's very deep purple with long legs. On the nose it has strong hints of deep plum, mulberry, chocolate, cherry and licorice with mild notes of vanilla and spice. The taste is dynamic, but not overpowering on the pallet, with full bodied fruit and a great balance of the typical shiraz flavors. Acidy balances out nicely after an hour of decanting. The finish is long and wickedly enjoyable with a strong lingering of pepper and heat.

color: deep blue/black; nose-wild berries & cola; mouth-earth,clove & plum; finish - long & lingering; buy it, age it, drink it share it.

Big blueberry fruit, with smooth tannins and heavy acidity. Recommend decanting for this one, as previously it helped with the integration. Outstanding - 90 points.

Perfect Australian example that manages to satisfy sans silly name.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Dark plum with bright purple hue. The nose shows dark liquorice with a meld of plum and blackberry with hints of chocolate and spice. The mouthfeel is dense and coating, with oodles of juicy rich fruit. Luscious mocha and dark berry fruit compete for attention, leaving you with a wine that is evidently drinkable now. The Wine Advocate A brilliant effort is the 2005 Brave Faces, a small barrel-aged (20% new) blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Grenache. Flamboyant aromas of black and red fruits, spice box, flowers, and toast are followed by a rich wine with loads of texture and glycerin as well as a heady, full-throttle yet velvety finish. It should drink well for a decade. Score: 92. —Robert Parker, October 2006. The Wine Spectator Lithe and focused, with a surprising but appealing root beer note weaving through the blackberry and licorice flavors, which linger gently against firm tannins and tangy acidity on the finish. Has impeccable balance. Drink now through 2011. Score: 90. October 15, 2006. "
