Keyshawn Johnson has started his own wine label

During Keyshawn Johnson's NFL playing career, he was known for wanting the damn ball but it appears that he is now wanting the damn cork.

Recently, Keyshawn helped start "KJ1 Winery" and has started bottling a 2007 Cabernet that will be going on sale in the Fall. The wine though isn't going to be cheap and has been rumored to be more than $150 dollars per bottle.

For those of you looking for a review of the wine, here it is from sommelier Virginia Phillips:
To the eye, the wine has a purple core with electric pink highlights on the rim. The nose is powerful, with much black pepper and overtones of ripe black cherry and rich berry aromas. There are notes of tobacco, vanilla and clove mingling with damp earth. Unctuous and full-bodied on the palate, there are chewy tannins leading to a lingering finish. The wine tastes well on its own; pairing suggestions include Steak au Poivre, Rosemary Crusted Lamb Chops or BBQ-rubbed meats.
