Cycles Gladiator Syrah 2006 review by (PB)
Deep black cherry hue with Zinfandel-like berry aromas with big fragrant, cigar box heft.
Palate--*"Sweet" foundation of plum and a front with ample berry flavors and black pepper at the rear.
This is a big wine, with big flavors and at $5 on closeout, it is a bargain! (Normally runs at the ubiquitous $10 price point) Raise a glass to close out wines that pan out!
*"Sweet" in this instance does not mean "SWEET" like you might expect. But some red wines, from Cabernets to Zinfandels that a dry as dust give a sweet" impression.
