Lot #538. Yao Ming Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Score: 97 WE.
"The former basketball star's initial release immediately establishes itself among the elite Cabernets of Napa Valley. Made from mountain vineyards on Atlas Peak and benches in the Rutherford appellation, it combines intensity with elegance. Bursts with upfront, delicious blackberry, crème de cassis and dark chocolate flavors that are wildly sweet on the midpalate, but then finish thoroughly dry. Structure comes by way of a tangy minerality and finely laced tannins. This is one of those wines that is softly decadent from start to finish . . ." Wine Enthusiast, 6/1/2012
Provenance: The Maquereau Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $400
