94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a supple, juicy and cohesive wine that's bold and full bodied, with well-integrated intensity and tannin. Bright notes of currant, plum and cassis are complemented by toasted oak and baking spice, but it's the length and complexity that truly stand out."

93 Points - Owen Bargreen
"The 2018 Yao Family Wines Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding effort from this great vintage throughout Napa Valley. Once on the nose this takes on layers of violets with espresso bean and rich dark fruit tones. The palate is dense and full-bodied with lovely black tea and blackberry compote flavors that collide with minerals and smoky undertones."

Winemaker Notes
Appearance exhibits a deep ruby hue.  Aromas are layered with berry and flavors of cherry, cassis and violet.  There is a core minerality with lavender tones.  The oak is well integrated and has nice toast aromas with hints of vanilla and wild sage.  On the palate the wine is lush and firm but also has mature long tannins and supple texture.  This wine can be enjoyed now and will age for 10 years.
