The 2016 YAO MING California Dessert Wine as a deep purple color and rich hue. The nose is succulent and shows layers of blueberry, rich strawberry and red currant notes. Soft notes of vanilla, violet and toast provide aromatic richness. The texture is supple and juicy, showing off the 2016 vintage. The pallet is lush with long core texture. Pure viscosity. Aging? You may want to leave a bottle for your grandchildren!

Wine Profile
Blend
All of our fruit is hand sorted and fully destemmed to small stainless-steel tanks with no crushing. Cold soaks (5-7 days), warm fermentations (85-90° F), and moderate pumpovers (twice a day or less) were done this year in order to express the 2016 vintage. Total skin contact ranged from 19-34 days with all fermentations being carefully basket pressed and put to barrel on full fermentation lees for ML. Wine was fortified at 9% RS. Racking was twice per year with only one assemblage being done to allow the blend to “marry” in barrel. Native yeast and ML used with only small lots conducted using cultured Bordeaux isolates.
