A dark center with a garnet rim. The nose shows lots of Barossa chocolate, dark plum and hints of
violet. It is a wine with good fruit complexity which draws upon the attributes of each variety in the
blend: Shiraz gives richness and fruit, Merlot adds a textural softness and the Cabernet Sauvignon
with its firm tannins reins in the fruit to give a wine of flavor, balance and structure.
"The first few releases of Clancy's (many years ago) caused quite a stir, but now it fights for territory among thousands of similar wines. However, this wine doesn't lose the battle; its palate is medium-bodied, with good red and black fruits, the blend is synergistic and satisfying. The precise blend is 50% shiraz, 34% cabernet sauvignon and 16% merlot."

"Supple, silky and appealing for its dark berry and spice flavors. This picks up licorice notes on the expressive finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2013."
