With handcrafted simplicity, our Old Vine Zinfandel wins over new fans year after year. Select fruit sourced from the 100-year old Frediani Vineyard in Calistoga is minimally processed and aged in American oak barrels to deliver a rich, robust and excellently balanced red wine.
Our flagship wine, this vintage features a fruit-forward nose, a bold structure and a dense, full body. Lots to excite the palate here. Very typical of the 2013 vintage from Napa Valley, this wine is settling into its "drink now" phase, and will be quite palatable for years to come.
Classic Chardonnay, through and through, this is another award-winning vintage from Nils Venge. With all the flavor you'd expect from Napa Valley, this Chardonnay balances a bright acidity and lighter body with epic roundness and a smooth, crisp finish.
Rare Napa Valley-grown Sangiovese that rises to any occasion. This medium-bodied stunner is a local favorite, growing right around the corner from Saddleback's Oakville estate on Money Road -- just turn the corner to Penny Lane and a little bit of heaven.
SINGLE-VINEYARD CHARDONNAY. This age-worthy "collectors' Chardonnay" hails from the small, cherished Sangiacomo Vineyard not far from the town square in Sonoma in the Carneros District in the cool south end of Napa & Sonoma valleys. Acquired by Nils with our faithful Posse wine club shipments in mind, and produced with the utmost attention, this full-bodied Chardonnay is a perfect companion for those special occasions and the Chardonnay connoisseur.
Rich and robust, this 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows all the hallmarks of the 2013 valley vintage. Brilliant scarlet in the glass, and vibrant to the nose. Aromas of dark black cherry and a hint of anise are followed by bright, velvety flavors of clove, cassis and blackberry. 70 cases made.
Only 70 cases made. This cool-weather year yielded a small crop for Napa Valley Cabernet, so this precious cargo was well-treated in Nils's custom-made American oak/French oak barrels. Composition: 100% Cabernet. Aromas of violets and dark fruit abound; on the palate a brilliant, now silky balance of minerality, deep fruit and tannin. Finish is clean and lengthy.
Vermentino is a light-skinned varietal found primarily in Italy, noted for its dry, crisp mouthfeel and appealing floral notes. Our New World version is grown in the sunny but cooler sub-appellation of Carneros, on the Sonoma County side.
Deep garnet color and aromas of black cherries, peppery spice rack, and cigar box lead to flavors of ripe berries are layered over rich velvety tannins producing a layered mouthfeel. Gold Medal, 2017 Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition.
What a great Saddleback Napa Valley gift!
