From the bottle:
I have been lucky enough to be the head of winemaker at a small award winning Californian winery but I’ve always hankered after the opportunity to make my own special wines.
So thank you for stepping in and supporting me, as without your financial support, it simply wouldn’t happen!
I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think atNakedWines.com/fstephenmillier.
We’re big fans of wines from Lodi, California here at Reverse Wine Snob and while there is a surprising amount of variety to be found in this region, there’s no better value than Zinfandel. But don’t take our word for, even the winemaker’s themselves told us so. After tasting a whole lot of Lodi wine over the last couple years, we tend to agree.
The 2012 F. Stephen Millier Angel’s Reserve Zinfandel begins with jammy, dark berry fruit aromas along with licorice, cola, pepper, a little vanilla and bramble. Tasting this classic Zin reveals much of the same: lots of jammy fruit, a good dose of bramble, black pepper, spice, licorice, vanilla and oak. A fairly big, high octane wine that will go great with BBQ sauce and grilled meat, this Zin is a great choice for the summer grilling season. It ends with good length and that same mix of flavors lingering nicely.
