Housley's Century Oak Winery Napa Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon





Housley's Century Oak Winery Napa Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $21.24-$49.99, 90 points, poured an impregnable purple/red grading brighter toward the clear wine ring and lightly draped glass bowl.
Pleasant aromas of blackberries, boysenberry jam, roses, and cedar were lovely.
Full bodied with good acidity and a moderately supportive underlayment of tannin delivered flavors of plum, a touch of oak, and an easy blackberry liqueur segued seamlessly into a long finish nuanced with pepper spices, licorice, and a well-balanced 14.2% alcohol.
Paired fine with our Ollie's pizza.

  2. A sad addendum...they lost their daughter/granddaughter in the Thousand Oaks shooting.
