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.
2016: 425 Cases Made
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.
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.
A straight-up stunner! "Classic Nils Venge Cabernet Sauvignon ... 92 Pts" -- Robert Parker Jr, Wine Advocate
93 PTS -- SF International Wine Competition (Gold Medal)
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.
Elegant aromas of lavender, violet, dark cherries and sweet vanilla fill the nose leading to a palate of rich black currant and anise. Moderate tannins give this delicate wine a backbone.

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!

By blending Cabernet Franc and a touch of Merlot with only the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2011 vintage, we created our 30th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon. We’ve branded the wine “Nils” to honor Nils Venge’s great dedication to fine winemaking.
