    Winemaker Notes

    Just when you think you've had the biggest wine ever, Nils comes out with something even larger. Pampered and cradled from inception , this blockbuster wine comes from a great and bountiful vintage. The color is the blackest of blackberry, and both the nose and the mouthfeel are hellaciously delectable! The nose is dominated by briery fruit: blackberry, loganberry, and boysenberry. The taste, well ... beneath the fullness, we find the smoky wood is delicate, not overpowering,and the rich chocolate is dark, not milky. Black pepper and coffee bean elevate this distinct wine to an opulent level. The tannins are subtle, but the structure is solid. This wine will be best enjoyed in two to three years, but you may decide to lay it down for many years to come!

    Saddleback Cellars, Napa Valley, California
    Image of winery
    Saddleback Cellars was established in 1981 in the heart of the Napa Valley by Nils Venge. Nils Venge is universally regarded as one of the foremost pioneers of the Napa Valley wine industry.

    Born to Danish immigrants, Venge's exposure to wine came at an early age: his parents operated a wine and liquor import and distribution company in Southern California. Venge continued his pursuit of wine at the University of California in Davis where he earned a BS in Viticulture in 1967.

    Following a tour of duty in Vietnam as a Navy Reservist, Venge moved to the Napa Valley to pursue his interest in winemaking. In the subsequent years, Venge worked for notable wineries, such as Charles Krug, Sterling, Villa Mount Eden and Groth. During his tenure at Groth, Venge became the first American winemaker to receive a perfect 100 point rating from wine critic Robert Parker Jr. The 1985 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon catapulted Venge to a venerated position in the California wine industry.
