Cycles Gladiator Syrah 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Blueberries, black pepper and smoke, this Syrah is packed with flavor. The deep-ruby-colored Cycles Gladiator 2010 Syrah opens with notes of blueberry and tobacco. Intense flavors burst into the mouth with notes of dark fruit, espresso and dried herbs layered with spice. This wine is complex and balanced, with soft tannins and good acidity, tapering off to an elegant finish.

Spicy on the nose, and floral, with nice complexity and balance to the array of perfumes that include sweet, toasty oak, black pepper, slightly jammy plummy fruit and lots of peppery spice. It’s all a bit obvious, and the oak is a bit harsh, but it’s well balanced. Smooth and suple. Really remarkably so for a wine at this price. This is a bit creamy but with finely tuned acids lending freshness to the distinctly blackberry fruit on the palate. The wood creeps in adding spice and air brings out violet and peppery nuance. Finishing with freshness and dusty if sweet wood tannins, this turns a bit rougher but it retains the attractively pure and fresh fruit that it exhibits on the palate right through the long, peppery and spicy finish. Quintessential value priced Syrah. 86pts
