Cycles Gladiator, Cabernet SauvignonRegular price €23.00
Full-bodied Californian 'Meritage' (Bordeaux blend) aged in 55% new French oak. Bold but approachable, with rich flavours of dark berries, mocha, and pepper.
The complex, deep flavours pair well with robust meats and hearty pasta dishes. Try it with beef tenderloin and grilled vegetables, rabbit ragout, or a homemade burger with onions sautéed in a splash of the wine!
The Cycles range was at one time banned in the US state of Alabama because of the perceived affront to public morals caused by the early 20th century poster used on its labels. The resulting publicity gave the wines a welcome boost internationally and at home, and the return of the winery to the control of original winemaker Adam Lazarre has also seen the revival of a more authentically flamboyant presentation.
