Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir 2011
Cycles Gladiator symbolizes a celebration of the freedom and happiness that pervaded Europe in the late 19th century—an era known as the Belle Epoque. This era marked many notable inventions and improvements to daily life, not the least of which was the modern bicycle or Le Bicycle Velocipede.
Projecting a light purple hue reminiscent of a Jolly Rancher grape candy nugget, this delightful Pinot greets one with a friendly wink and smile. If you enjoy the challenge of finding spice on the nose, you'll love this gem. It's there, give it time. Gives way to a silky mouthfeel as smooth as the isolated vocal track of a Marguerite Juenemann record.
Initial taste of an even blend of cloves and raspberries. Just a smooth tasting wine that has been combined to produce a lovely feeling on the tongue.
External Reviews for Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir
This fresh and juicy Pinot Noir bursts out of the glass with aromas of cherries. Unrestrained fruit continues on the palate with the round and supple mouthfeel complementing a medium body that frames delicate tannins. On the finish, a slight cedar and vanilla character show off a delicate oak influence in this easy drinking Pinot Noir. - WineryCooperage:40% new French oak60% neutral oakTotal Acidity: 0.62 g/100mlTotal pH: 3.75Alcohol: 13.9%
