A straight-up stunner! "Classic Nils Venge Cabernet Sauvignon ... 92 Pts" -- Robert Parker Jr, Wine Advocate
93 PTS -- SF International Wine Competition (Gold Medal)
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.
Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc pops with aromas of citrus blossom and flavors of tart apple and peach, all delivered with a satin-y smooth mouthfeel. Refreshing and light, neutral oak barreling lends a round finish. Delightful!
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.
Winery Exclusive! Strikingly fragrant, this blush, dry rosé will tickle your palate with bright, enticing flavors, including hints of kaffir lime, chrysanthemum and fresh-picked strawberry. A rare find from Saddleback (our last rosé was vinted in 2013!), it's not one to miss.
No Jam in Sight! Here is a rare, prized find from a hillside in Yountville out of the Mello Vineyard: perfectly handcrafted Napa Valley Malbec.
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.
A Saddleback step into Grenache sourced from Frediani Vineyards in Calistoga brings about an appealing medium-to-dense bodied red, with rich plum and ripe pomegranate flavors, and supple tannins.
