Welcome to Yao Family Wines
"These are high class wines. The two Cabernets are actually brilliant, and the Reserve bottling ranks alongside just about anything made in Napa." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Elegant soft gold color. The nose is complex and shows layers of citrus, tree fruits and tropical notes. Aromas lead with lemon drop, green apple. There is a floral note of fresh Jasmine with papaya core. The texture is crisp with delightful acidity and captures the texture of Pinot Noir.
Yao Family Wines is proud to release our 2016 YAO MING Family Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the highest expression of Cabernet we produce. The 2016 is a gorgeous, balanced and refined reflection of one of Napa's finest vintages, and perhaps our most widely-acclaimed bottling to date.
Appearance exhibits a deep ruby hue. Aromas are layered with berry and flavors of cherry, cassis and plum. There is a core minerality with lavender tones. The oak is well integrated and has nice toast aroma with hints of vanilla and wild sage. On the palate the wine is lush and firm but also has mature tannins and supple texture.
