Cycles Gladiator Cabernet Sauvignon California 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The deep-hued Cycles Gladiator 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and lush, with intense red and black fruit character. Aromas of wild berries, chocolate and clove precede mouth-filling flavors of raspberry, dark cherry, cigar box and anise. Well-balanced with smooth tannins and refreshing acidity, this wine is as enjoyable sipped on its own as it is with food. This wine pairs well with dishes sharing its bold, flavorful nature. Try it with lasagna with a rich meat sauce, or with grilled rib-eye steaks seasoned with olive oil, garlic and fresh rosemary. Strongly flavored cheeses, such as cheddar and Gorgonzola, also make delicious partners.

Cycles-Gladiator Cabernet Sauvignon has lovely aromas of raspberry, mint, and mocha. Flavors of dark fruits layered on more dark fruits wrapped in a cloak of dusty tannins. Lush and mouthfilling from start to finish, there is enough acid to support the whole structure but doesn't finish sharp. The wine drops off at just the right place.
