The 2009 Cricket Pitch boasts medium to full bodied color and density with aromas of red
cherry, spice and earthy edges. Mid weight palate with some Cabernet Sauvignon cedar up
front is softened by the richness of Shiraz. The oak regime is older American and French,
adding subtle vanillin on both nose and palate with a long sweet finish. A drink-now style that
will further soften with medium term bottle maturation while retaining excellent fruit flavors
and balance under the screw cap packaging.
