About This Wine
At Grayson Cellars, the winemaking is not limited by geography.
“We insist on searching throughout California’s finest growing regions to find the highest quality grapes for our wines,” a Grayson family spokesperson says. “The wines are then made by Larry Levin in Napa.”
A winemaker with more diverse experience would be difficult to find. Over 18 vintages at Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Vineyard, Levin produced more than 15 different varietal wines. Next came a stint with Icon Estates, overseeing the acclaimed Franciscan, Mt. Veeder, Robert Mondavi, Estancia, Ravenswood, Quintessa and Ruffino brands. He also has made wine in New Zealand, Australia and Chile.
And now he’s devoting his attention to Grayson Cellars. The 2010 Grayson Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color, rich in aroma, round in mouthfeel and soft on the finish. You get all the great Cabernet flavor without the youthful Cabernet “bite” — a true work of art by an artisan vintner.

Cabernet Sauvignon Ice Cream Our friends at Alexander Valley Vineyards came up with this wonderful recipe a few years ago. We've tried it with Cabernet Sauvignon (as the recipe calls for), as well as Merlot, Primitivo, Cabernet Franc and Zinfandel... and every time, it turns out delicious! It's best made with an ice cream maker, and if you have such a machine, it's extremely easy to assemble. Enjoy! Get The Recipe
