Yao Ming Napa Crest, Napa Valley Red Wine 2012
“ Coming from almost any other winery, this would be its lead wine. It’s absolutely delicious in cherries, blackberries, currants, anise and smoky oak, with strong but refined tannins and bright acidity. It will last in the bottle for up to six years” - Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast
Yao Family Wines was founded by Yao Ming, former NBA star and global humanitarian, in Napa Valley in 2008, aiming at creating the best wines that the California Region offers to share with the world.
The Company’s wines have received critical acclaim from Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate and Steve Heimoff of the Wine Enthusiast. Mr. Parker wrote: "I am aware of all the arguments that major celebrities lending their names to wines is generally a formula for mediocrity, but that is not the case with Yao Ming. These are high class wines. The two Cabernets are actually brilliant, and the Reserve bottling ranks alongside just about anything made in Napa."
