2016 DuMOL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $100)

SKU #1437794 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. There's a lingering cast iron note keeping this grounded. Best from 2021 through 2032. 640 cases made. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is another pure, seamless wine that has plenty of sweet cassis fruit as well as notes of white flowers, graphite, and sandalwood. It’s complex, with fine tannins and an elegant, ethereal profile that’s very much in the classic, balanced style favored by this estate. Drink it over the coming 20 years or more.

K&L Notes

Whilst perhaps better known for his world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay DuMol's Winemaker, Andy Smith, has a long and storied history making Cabernet Sauvignon. Most notably, he worked at Larkmead, from 1999-2013, where he conceived and created a range of soil and varietal driven Estate bottlings that helped propel Larkmead to its rightful place as one of Napa’s top historic estates earning 100 point scores from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate along the way. Additionally, Andy made the Gemstone wines in the late 1990’s, and was the assistant winemaker at Paul Hobbs, where he worked with world renowned sites such as Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, To Kalon, Las Piedras, and Nathan Coombs. Similarly to their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, DuMol's Napa Cabernet is sourced from a prized selection of "Grand Cru" sites around Napa Valley including: Meteor (Coombsville), True Dog Knoll (Oakville - Opus One & Martha’s just to the North, Vine Hill Ranch to the South, and Moueix’s Ulysses to the East) & Ballard (Spring Mountain). This inaugral broad market release is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot and was aged for 20 months in 50% new French oak.
