In case you didn’t know already, former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming has entered the wine trade and it appears that one wine critic is a fan.
Famed wine critic Robert Parker recently reviewed a 2010 Yao Ming Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and gave it a pretty outstanding score.
We learn more from The Drinks Business:
Robert Parker reviewed Yao Family Wines for the first time in the October edition of The Wine Advocate and gave the wine high praise saying it was, “impressive to see what the big man is doing in the wine game”.
He reviewed three of Yao’s 2010 vintage wines and scored 95 to the 2010 Yao Ming Family Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
He wrote: “The 2010 Yao Ming Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon possesses an opaque blue/purple colour as well as a gorgeous bouquet of spring flowers, red and black fruits and subtle toasty oak.
“Full-bodied and impeccably made with beautiful texture, length and richness, it can be drunk now, but will stand the test of time for 15 or more years.
Clearly, Yao Ming has now conquered the wine game…
