The founders of Grayson believe that we can put to work our Napa Valley winemaking skills to create some of the highest quality wines at the by-the-glass price point. We believe that decades of Napa winemaking experience will allow us to create a better bottle of wine at a better price point than what’s generally in the market today. Our current releases include our California Chardonnay, California Pinot Noir, California Zinfandel, California Merlot and California Cabernet Sauvignon. You will find our wines to be fruit forward, well balanced and pleasant to drink. Our wines are carefully crafted by Larry Levin, who is among the most experienced winemakers in the Napa Valley. After completing his Enology degree at UC Davis, Larry spent seventeen years at Dry Creek Vineyard where over 18 vintages he produced more than 15 varietal wines. He has since covered the globe by making wine in New Zealand, Chile, and Australia across all price points and styles. For the previous nine years Larry was head of winemaking at Icon Estates where he oversaw the Franciscan, Mt. Veeder, Robert Mondavi, Estancia, Ravenswood, Quintessa and Ruffino brands. Larry also consults for wineries in the Stag’s Leap and Oakville districts in Napa and Sonoma. Grayson Winery produces its wines at a state-of-the-art Napa Valley production facility very near Highway 29. We insist our winemakers search throughout California’s finest growing regions to find the highest quality grapes for Grayson wines. The wines are then made by Larry Levin in Napa, California.

A solid cab. It becomes a remarkable one when you see the pricetag. Perfect everyday wine.

Grayson Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 10 2009 750ML


External Review

Classic Paso Cab, very soft, totally ripe and generous, with a plethora of blackberry, cherry and red plum flavors that are almost jammy. Yet the wine is dry, with some real elegance. For early drinking.

Even better is the 30,000-case cuvee of 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (aged 9 months in stainless steel and neutral French oak). The "real deal," it is a velvety textured, lush, round, crowd-pleasing Cabernet revealing a dark ruby color as well as lots of black currant and herb notes intermixed with a hint of smoke. This is a remarkable operation producing relatively large quantities of wine that offer sensational value.

Also noteworthy is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 10 (6,700 cases). While it can probably be purchased for under $10, it tastes like a Cabernet in the $25ndash;$40 range. An incredible value, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, ages in 100% French oak, boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as a big, rich nose of blackberries, medium body, supple tannins, and surprising intensity and length. Just amazing!

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon offers sweet cherry and berry fruit in a straightforward, medium-bodied, spicy style. Easy-going with supple tannins and a surprisingly elegant personality for a Paso Robles Cabernet, it should drink well for 2ndash;3 years.

A sensational value from California, this time from the Paso Robles area, Grayson Cellarsrsquo; 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon ranks among the best bargains in Cabernet from that state. Notes of blueberries, wild flowers, black cherries, and background subtle wood emerge from this medium-bodied, fruit-driven effort. With silky tannin, excellent purity, and a real personality, it can be enjoyed over the next several years.
