    Winemaker 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.

    Cycles Gladiator Winery Video

    Cycles Gladiator Winery has arguably the most striking label of any value-driven brand. The image was originally created as an advertising poster by French artist Georges Massias in 1895, and it is still a highly recognized work to this day. The marketing company “Wine Hooligans” purchased the brand and completely modernized the wine and sharpened the label to be closer to the original “Belle Epoque” artistry.  The wines of Cycles Gladiator are pulled from appellations up and down the North and Central Coast areas of California from Sonoma to Santa Barbara, depending on the varietal. The sourcing is as follows: Chardonnay – Edna Valley, Monterey County & Russian River, Pinot Noir – Monterey, Sonoma & Clarksburg, Merlot – Paso Robles, Cabernet – Paso Robles & Livermore, Petite Sirah – Paso Robles & Lodi.  Winemaker Adam Lazarre first fell in love with wine while serving honorably in the U.S. Navy for nearly 7 years. Rather than continue his military service, he chose to enroll in Fresno State’s highly acclaimed Enology program where he graduated, despite all the wine he drank while in school. During his studies, he fell in love with and subsequently relocated to the Central Coast of California where he became one of the most accoladed winemakers in California, with Best-of-Show wins at the most prestigious wine competitions in the world including the L.A.

    Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.

    California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.

    Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
