93 Points from Wine Spectator
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.

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.
This 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet is a classically built wine typical of this wonderful Napa vintage: deep fruit, enveloping texture, mineral freshness and long supple structure. It’s a harmonious interweaving of four distinct vineyards that intricately balances power and finesse.
DuMOL has held the core principle, since inception, to be responsible stewards for their surrounding environment both in their vineyards and in their winemaking. Built in 2008, their winery was the first “green” facility in the Windsor township, 100% solar powered and utilizing a bioreactor system to reduce all waste water impact from winery processing activities to below that of a single-family household. Beyond its environmental considerations, the winery was strategically designed by Andy Smith to optimize the vinification of DuMOL’s many individual wine lots with custom small-lot fermentation tanks to include a Tuscan terracotta Amphora fermenter.
