Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintages: 2008

Country: California, USA

Essence of: When I first open this wine I had aromas of dried strawberries and tons of alcohol, it was overwhelming. I took a sip and was disappointed. The tannins are very harsh and overpowered the fruit in the wine, not well balanced at first / Bits recommended to let this wine sit and breath for 15 to 20 min the flavors begin to settle down and the fruit comes into place. / Notes of cedar and bits of vanilla and spice come out once the alcohol subsides, but the tannins remain very apparent with a lingering long finish.

Best Served With: Gamey & Grilled Meats

Price Range: Under $15 per bottle

Grayson Cellars, Lot 10

Overall Wine Review: Wine rating system Wine rating system Wine rating system Wine rating system

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintages: 2009

Country: California, USA

Essence of: The 2009 Grayson Cabernet Sauvignon shows a dark violet color with deep, rich aromas of ripe, dark cherries, blackberries and hints of black pepper / This full bodied wine provides a round mouth feel with a long, lingering finish of hints of toasted French oak and a dry finish / I went through the whole bottle in one sitting, it’s THAT good. Really there many negative attributes for this wine and since its it’s only a 2009 vintage I wonder what it might be like in 2-3 years!

Best Served With: Grilled & Braised Meats, Tomato based Pastas and Pizza

Price Range: Under $12 per bottle

Twisted

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintages: 2008

Country: California

Essence of: Flavors of bing cherry and ripe blueberry / hints of soft vanilla and smoky oak notes / a abrasive noise of alcohol, jammy fruit, and earthly characteristics I would recommend to let this wine breath for 5 min before you suck it up! Once you get past the strong noise the wine becomes easy drinking 🙂

Best Served With: Tomato based dishes, aged cheeses, grilled meats, grilled portabella mushrooms or mushroom dishes.

Price Range: Under $12 per bottle
