Ao Yun Red 2014

"Multilayered and complex, the second vintage from Ao Yun captures the terroir of the winery’s stunning location, high in the Himalayan foothills in China’s Yunnan province. Ao Yun winemakers have continued their unique adventure with this blend of cabernet sauvignon and a touch of cabernet franc, finding a balance between fresh minerality and dark sweetness." —winemaker

"The cabernet sauvignon character is shinning through in this second edition of what has quickly become China's best wine. It's full-bodied, structured and chewy with polished tannins and beautiful length and intensity. A super-structured red that needs two or three years to soften completely. Try in 2020." —JamesSuckling.com

"Inky garnet in the glass, this wine from the foothills of the Himalayas offers a bouquet of dark plum, cassis and pipe tobacco. It opens on the palate with bright flavors of blackberry, black cherry and blood orange that slowly back off to reveal sophisticated notes of cacao, anise and shaved truffle. As firm tannins fade, bold fruit returns to the palate for a finish that is marked by a touch of eucalyptus. Drink now through 2028. Cellar Selection." —Wine Enthusiast Magazine
