2021 SADDLEBACK OLD VINE CALISTOGA ZINFANDEL

$56.00

Nils Venge established Saddleback Cellars in 1982 before becoming the first American winemaker to achieve a perfect 100-point score from Robert Parker for the Groth 1985 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. This accomplishment solidified a benchmark of excellence in winemaking in Napa Valley, and 40 years later, Nils’ wines continue to be justly rewarded with 90+ Point reviews from numerous critics.

Saddleback Cellars sits on 14 acres on Money Road in the Oakville AVA, also home to prestigious names like Harlan Estate, Opus One, and Screaming Eagle.

Nils sources his Zinfandel from old vines in Calistoga that give this fruit intense concentration, lively energy, and depth while maintaining Nils’ award-winning house style.

*PS: Nils Venge is the father of 100 Point Superstar Winemaker Kirk Venge! Kirk’s MAC ZIN is just ridiculously amazing! 2020 MACAULEY VINEYARD OLD VINE NAPA VALLEY ZINFANDEL

Tasting Notes from WCC, “The Saddleback 2021 Zinfandel comes from old vines in Calistoga and gives deep aromas of cloves, cinnamon, plum, peach, preserves, and milk chocolate. On the palate, the wine has intense flavors of raspberry, bing cherry, blueberry muffins, and sweet baking spices. The wine has a mouth-coating, velvety texture with an enduring finish.” WCC 94 POINTS
