2006 Cycles Gladiator Cabernet Sauvignon

We had this producer's Pinot Noir a while back and it was fine, but I figured for $6 this might be worth a gamble.

A bit of cough syrup on the nose – cherry flavor.

I hate to say it – it tastes like cough syrup too. Artificial cherry, a bit of fake sugar syrup, no tannins to speak of, I get some vanilla, but nothing in terms of oak.

A syrupy feel on the finish and that's about it.

Well, I suppose it depends on how much you like cough syrup. While I wouldn't recommend drinking five ounces of cough syrup if you're not sick, should you have a craving, a glass of this will suit the bill.
