DuMOL has been synonymous with great Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. As you might (not) know, Andy Smith (winemaker and partner) made the wines at Larkmead in the Napa Valley for years. That said, after 20+ vintages, DuMOL decided to add some Cabernet to its portfolio.
The 2016 is a blend of some well-known and highly regarded Napa Valley vineyards – Meteor (59%), True Dog Knoll (30%) and the balance Ballard on Spring Mountain. The 2016 Cabernet is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petite Verdot.

Winemaker Notes: “ With its harmonious layers and textures, this wine reminds me of the 2012 Napa Valley vintage. Dark, inky and opaque, it presents aromas of plum, violets and graphite. Beautiful fruit cascades almost immediately to more savory flavors: crushed rock dustiness, cocoa and cedar. A good, firm mineral spine runs through to the long, bittersweet finish. Ever-evolving in the glass, this wine is poised now and will age beautifully over the next 10+ years.”
Tasting Notes: A ripe, friendly style, with a creamy-textured core of cassis and cherry preserve flavors underscored by anise and apple wood notes that stay nicely melded with the fruit on the finish
