Grayson Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 10 California 2022


This is not one of those Cabernets that hits you over the head with a ton of fruit or American oak. It does have oak, but it’s 100% French, which imparts different flavors than the American Oak. Instead this one represents a spicier side of Cabernet and it works perfectly. It’s a medium-bodied Cabernet with a ton of personality.

If the wine seems too good for the price, there’s a good reason for that. The wines at Grayson Cellars are made by Larry Levin, one of the more accomplished Napa Valley winemakers around. He earned his chops at Dry Creek Vineyard before running the wine programs at Franciscan, Mt. Veeder, Mondavi, Ravenswood and even Quintessa.

Larry makes wines in his native St. Helena that are driven by varietal character, balance and depth while providing its customers with exceptional value. But he may have outdone himself with the 2022 Lot 10 Cabernet from Grayson. It’s dark fruited, with black pepper nuanced throughout, with a lot of precision and some grippy tannins that start to open up with some time in the glass.

92 Points (Best Buy), Wine Enthusiast
Produced from small lots from around California, this wine offers notes of dried rose petals, potpourri and plums. These flavors give way to watermelon and round out to hot-tamale candy and a dry finish. The wine would pair nicely with braised meats.
