Some Cabernet Sauvignon wines drink like a love song to the very grape itself. They bloom from the glass with perfumes of red roses, black cherries, and crushed blackcurrants. Drinking them is like biting into a perfectly ripe and crunchy cluster of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Nary a prune, barrel, or oxidative aroma besmirches that pristine, fragrant Cabernet fruit. If this portrait sounds appealing to you, we have a gorgeous wine to propose: Yao Ming’s terrific 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet. The 7’6” retired basketball star, philanthropist, and longtime wine lover from Shanghai delivered a slam dunk in 2015 with this Cabernet made from benchland fruit from Yountville to St. Helena, and the 2016 really delivers as well.
