Winemaker Notes

Youthful aromatics of fresh plum, blueberries, and brown sugar with hints of caramel and violets. Flavors consist of black cherry and other dark fruits with notes of vanilla from a combination of good French and American wood. The addition of Cabernet and Syrah brings a bit of blackberry and raspberry to the mix. Great acidity keeps the flavors hanging in the mouth well after the finish.

Blend: 86% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

Cycles Gladiator, California
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.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.
