Yao Ming

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Friday fire up for Ringo Starr and his all star band concert!! Double decant (min sediment). An intriguing medium ruby red/purple. On the nose: black cherry, cassis, tobacco. Taste: blackberry, toasted oak, blueberry, minerals, pencil lead...some unresolved tannin..give it just a few years.

Stopped by their beautiful Napa tasting room on a very quiet Sunday morning last week(we were the only one there....friendly, knowledgeable staff). In honor of Yao Ming, here is a quick review of the 3 wines we tasted:
2016 Yao Ming Napa valley cab....2 pt shot inside the paint.
2016 Yao Ming reserve cab...2 pt..three point attempt, but foot on the line.
2016 Yao Ming Howell Mtn cab...3 point, just outside the line...picked up three bottles!

Really quality rosè. Bright red fruit on the nose. Tart cherry on the palate. Insane mouth watering acidity. Easily drinkable, yet memorable. Paired excellent with a pan roasted chicken and jam reduction. — 2 years ago

Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This is a big BOY! Yao Ming Family Reserve pricing in at 275 a bottle is DAMN GOOD as it should be. I was able to grab a few bottles for 165 a pop! If this were the normal price I would give it a perfect 10. Blackberry and dark currant on the beginning is followed by raspberry and vanilla. The oak explodes at 3/4 palate time. The the finish leaves a tingle of black pepper and asphalt. It has a VERY DRY finish. Love this wine, BUT WAY OVER PRICED!!!!!! — a year ago
