Mission Codename Above the Rim

It may seem unlikely that former NBA star and international icon Yao Ming is now soaring above the competition in the Napa Valley. Not only did he enter an entirely new game in wine production, but he’s crushing it in his rookie season.

What’s impressive about his 2009 Yao Ming Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is how the wine’s best qualities express a caliber of Cabernet that clearly has top winemaking, grapes, barrels, and land. This is a super impressive wine that will put a big smile on the face of Cab aficionados and collectors alike. Look for richly layered dark berries, cedar, sweet tobacco, and the signature dusty loam spice of Napa Valley fruit.

This is a wine that currently sells for $110-$150. Today via The Wine Spies it’s available for only $74.99.
