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.
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.
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.
This longtime favorite of Saddleback lovers is back in its 23rd "Old Vine" vintage. As always, in short supply. As always, a delectable medium-bodied, nicely balanced Zin that shows how delicious and delightful the varietal can be. Release date: July 29, 2017
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.
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.
Succulent yet dry white wine, perfect where ever friends take you. Sourced from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma, this is the Portuguese version of the varietal aka Verdejo (en Spain). Barreled in oak, the softness of this round white wine is remarkable. Excellently paired with spicy foods.
New Release! Rare Napa Valley-grown Sangiovese that rises to any occasion. This medium-bodied red wine is a local favorite, growing right around the corner from Saddleback's Oakville estate.
Robust and lively, this gem in a rare magnum format is ready for official release on February 3, 2018. Barreled in 80% new French oak. 100% Cabernet sourced from Napa Valley.
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.
