Appearance exhibits deep dark purple color with intense hues. This wine is elegant and powerful. There is focused fruit with pronounced plum, blackberry and currant. The fruit is framed with barrel notes of toast and baking spice. The palate has rich yet, supple, lush depth from integrated tannin structure. The wine comes together on the finish and lingers on the back of the palate providing a long finish. This wine is approachable now and will age for many years. It is very elegant.

Blended with 3% Petit Verdot, this dark-garnet wine bursts with aromas of herb, clove, tobacco and cedar. Aged entirely in new French oak for two years, it shows a decadent, sumptuous texture built by soft, integrated tannins around a core of dark chocolate and cassis.

Including slightly more Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Yao Ming Family Reserve is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot brought up all in new French oak. It's a beautiful, full-bodied effort that shines for its purity and balance as well as its classic crème de cassis, spicy oak, graphite, and cedar aromas and flavors. It's a sexy, flamboyant effort that will drink nicely for 15-20 years.

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Yao Family Reserve sports a deep garnet-purple color and offers up aromas of crème de cassis, blackberry tart and baking spices with hints of cedar, lavender and chocolate box. Medium to full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins, it's finely crafted with great expression and a lively lift to the finish.

The highlight in this range, Yao Ming's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve is rich, powerful and towering in its intensity. An exotic mélange of black cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice, spice and new leather fills out the wine's imposing tannic frame. The 2015 could use a few more years to come together, but it is impressive even today.
