Food Pairings for Grayson Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles
A solid cab. It becomes a remarkable one when you see the pricetag. Perfect everyday wine.
Best $10 cabernet I've tasted this year.
Very smooth taste. I enjoyed it a lot
For the money it is a nice smooth wine. Enough pepper and fruit to make it enjoyable.
Dark color. Chocolate and smoke on nose. Smooth texture. Mild tannins with decent structure. Fruit forward, some heat on the back end. 86pts
For the price, this is a drinkable Cab. I might buy again if looking for cheaper Cab.
Loved it so much, I went out and bought 2 cases!! very smooth for the price, you can't beat it!
External Reviews for Grayson Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles
The most recent releases include the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot). It offers plump, sweet chocolaty, berry fruit, and uncomplicated personality, good body, and a silky texture. Enjoy it over the next 2ndash;3 years.
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!
Even better is the 30,000-case cuvee of 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (aged 9 months in stainless steel and neutral French oak). The ldquo;real deal,rdquo; 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.
From hottish Paso, a Cab thatrsquo;s ultrasoft in acids, although there are some firm tannins. Easily worth the price for the smooth chocolate, coffee and blackberry pudding flavors that finish absolutely dry.

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.
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.
