About the wine

Only Meaghan and Stephen could have pulled off this stunning single-vineyard red
  • Your most daring duo in the Sierra Foothills is back, with a first-rate red blend of Cabernet and Merlot that gushes with tastes of ripe red fruits as the Cabernet’s richness mingles seamlessly with Merlot’s round, lush smoothness for a red you simply have to taste to believe.  
  • Using Angel funding, Meaghan and Stephen sourced all of their Cab and Merlot from the 38-year-old Esmeralda vineyard, set deep in the heart of Calaveras County on an old gold mining claim.
  • This limited release is this granddaughter-grandfather team at their finest, and thanks to your support, they can bring it to Angels everywhere for an unbeatable price.

Best before
Aging for three or four years should be optimum for this wine.

Serving advice
Open this bottle 20 to 30 minutes before pouring the first glass.

Food match
I really enjoyed this wine paired alongside lemon chicken, brown rice, and sautéed asparagus, red bell pepper, onion, and mushroom.

  • Meaghan is ready to get to work with Grandpa by her side, crafting single-vineyard specialties that really show off the Calaveras land they both love. 

  • With Angel support, Meaghan has officially become the second generation Millier winemaker... and a humbled Stephen is tipping his hat to you. “Thank you to Angels for making this collaboration possible,” your #1 winemaker says. “This is a true dream come true!"
