California Collection: Fifty Wines Under £50 - March 2019

The Wine Merchant


Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir 2016 was featured in the Wine Merchant magazine supplement California Collection: Fifty Wines Under £50 for its "red summer berry fruit."

The judges noted how "Winemaker Adam LaZarre started Cycles Gladiator in 2005 with the aim of producing “really great wines that taste two to three times the price”. The wine is aged in French and American oak for 14 months. “Oak is evident on this ripe, pretty sweet Pinot Noir that as the variety’s distinctive red summer berry fruit,” one judge observed. “Well-priced for California… fresh, suppler, textured and bright.”
