Cycles Gladiator adorns their label with some very pretty art by French painter G. Massias.

Bait and switch warning!
The label (with pretty art) claims this wine to be dry. The truth is that it is sweet. Not Boones Farm or Arbor Mist sweet, but in no way, shape, or form, can this be considered dry. It is certainly not off-dry either.

This is a fruity sweet wine. It does have a reasonable aroma that is reminiscent of cherries, cranberry, and pomegranate. It tastes strongly of cranberry and strawberries and has a poor and slightly bitter finish

This is a fairly inexpensive wine and performs as such. Did we mention that they have pretty art on their labels?
