Great vintage for the Cycles Gladiator winery, which is obvious from the first sip. Aromas of dark ripe fruit like blackberries, raspberries or blueberries as well as notes of creamy chocolate complemented by a delicate aroma of dried herbs and cedar wood. Juicy fruity flavors are fully supported with a generous thread of acidity. Tannins are pronounced but pleasingly supple. A wine for any occasion.
