"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. I assume these wines can actually be found for a lot less than $10 at the big discounters.

This is a remarkable operation producing relatively large quantities of wines that offer sensational value. Even more shocking is how good Grayson Cellars’ Pinot Noirs are for their price. Making Pinot Noir is akin to having a license to overcharge given the outrageously expensive Burgundies and the fact that most top California and Oregon Pinot Noirs are priced in the $40-$50+ range."

Winery Notes:
The 2009 Grayson Cabernet Sauvignon shows a dark ruby color with a rich nose of ripe, dark cherries, blackberries and hints of black pepper. This full bodied wine provides a round mouth feel with an intense, lingering finish of hints of toasted French oak.

There are few family-owned wines from California at this price point available today. Our family’s attention to winemaking quality separate Grayson from the larger, corporate brands that dominate the market. When our family started Grayson Cellars we asked our winemaker to look throughout California’s finest growing regions for the best grapes for Grayson wines. We believe these grape sources combined with nearly 30 years of winemaking experience make Grayson wines some of California’s finest values. Taste the value of Grayson wines yourself and see if you agree.
