Peter Lehmann Clancy's Barossa Red 2008
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.

Editorial Reviews for Peter Lehmann Clancy's Barossa Red
Shiraz 56%, Cabernet Sauvignon, 37%, Merlot 7% This smells rather smoky, earthy and herbal and black curranty with hints of mint, vanilla and fennel seed adding some detail. A little sweetish and over-ripe on entry with a pruny, truffly edge to the core of simple if rich black cherry and cassis flavors. Tannins are a touch dry and the acidity well integrated, lending this a somewhat old-world feel but it’s a bit matte on the palate and the finish is dominated by the structure and shows a touch of heat. 82pts
