About the wine

Deep, dark, rich and delicious.
  • "This wine is a blend of Old Vine Zinfandel grapes, with some vines up to eighty years of age. With Old Vines, you get fewer grapes, but more concentrated and nuanced fruit, so it is best to respect the fruit and let it speak for itself."
  • "My goal was to make a very rich full bodied Zinfandel with oak nuance, and Angels let me do exactly that so it's a great value. Wines like this one usually sell for a minimum of $35 and go right on up from there."
  • "I get to make several small lot Zinfandels with my Angel funding, and what makes this one special is the incredible character and expression of the old vineyards... you have to taste it to believe it."

Best before
This cork finished wine should improve in bottle for the next 3-5 years.

Serving advice
This wine should be ready to enjoy after about 15 minutes of air after removing its cork.

Food match
Recently, when we had our first cold night we prepared slow cooker braised turkey legs which we served over a bed of fat noodles covered in a brown mushroom sauce (gravy). It was a perfect combination of savory, earthy and spicy flavors.

Meet the winemaker - Stephen Millier

  • Stephen is no stranger to gold medals, but usually his prestigious employers are the only ones in the limelight.
  • We offered Stephen some Angel funding to set aside some of his favorites wines and vineyards to make a special range with his name on the label just for us, and he jumped at the opportunity.
  • If you like underdogs, Stephen's your man. He will find the over-looked and under-appreciated and he will take precious care to make sure they grow into big, beautiful wines that deserve more attention.
