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 Napa Valley side.
A dark purple in the glass with aromas of black tea and ripe currant. On the palate, bright and juicy, evoking the bursts of flavor found in peak-season cherries. Balanced tannins and a medium body lead to a cool, silky, long finish. This is an immensely approachable and food-friendly red wine. Pair with steaks, lamb, herb-crusted roasts and roasted vegetables.
Trousseau, the varietal most famously utilized to make port wine, is leveraged by our expert team here to create a "Late Harvest" dessert wine that will light your fire.
Double trouble when you show up with this magnum of premium Napa Valley Cabernet. The 2006 vintage marked Nils' 25th Anniversary with Saddleback, and he decided to design a special bottle of Cabernet for the occasion!
Get it while you can. Nils's popular Cabernet Sauvignon blend, sourced from our own Oakville District of Napa Valley. Named in honor of our best winery pooch, Chloe, who happily greets our guests. Great to drink now - 2023.

Only 79 cases made. Nils Venge's Reserve Cabernet is an iconic must-have from Napa Valley. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, barreled 24 months in 100% French oak, and held in bottle for another 24 to rest before release. This is a rare and rewarding vintage, complementary to dining and friendly to the palate with smooth, balanced dark berry flavors. Phenomenal finish.
Currently in wide release! Rare Napa Valley-grown Sangiovese is a light to medium-bodied stunner and a local favorite, growing right around the corner from Saddleback's Oakville estate. Aromas of cherries, pomegranate on the palate balanced by black olive and espresso, and a seriously creamy finish. Complements all varieties of picnic fare, lush Italian red sauces and warming temps.
