Winemaker's Notes:

The Cycles Gladiator Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold and expressive red wine with rousing aromas and intense flavor. Fragrances of blueberries and hot chocolate give this wine a semisweet aroma complimented by slight hints of soft spices. A taste reveals flavors reminiscent of a black cherry reduction and coffee ice cream, supported by plush tannins and asoft mouthfeel, ending with a rounded finish and a touch of dryness. This full bodied Cabernet is equally at home at a casual barbecue served up with slow roast pork shoulder or at dinner with Cabernet marinated flank steak.

About Cycles Gladiator:

Along the Sacramento River Delta sits the rich farmlands of the Lodi appellation and the new home to Cycles Gladiator Winery. A grape-growing region since the 1850’s, Lodi is now home to more than 80,000 acres of premium varietals and more than 50 wineries, and is quickly becoming recognized as one of California’s most exciting wine appellations.

Noted for its classic Mediterranean climate and its deep, fertile sandy loam soils, it is the perfect environment for the production of world class wines. The high daytime temperatures are moderated by cooling Delta breezes which flow through the area in the evenings, creating ideal growing conditions.

This emerging appellation is home to the vineyards that produce many Cycles Gladiator wines including Cabernet, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel, and the fruit is sustainably grown under the "Lodi Rules" certification .
