A truly beautiful red wine from another remarkable vineyard. The wine is 100% Grenache, from vines planted about 1910 as part of Secondo Guasti's orginal planting in Rancho Cucamonga. The history books portray the planting as mostly Zinfandel, but there is a surprising amount of Grenache that has survived: in fact, in two vineyards, separated by a few miles.


This wine is made from two distinct fermentations of the Maglite fruit: the ones stomped by Lolo and Dani. When Raj and I tasted the barrels late in February, we thought that these two fermentations were so good that we must combine them into a reserve and bottle them separately.


There are only 250 bottles produced; half will go into the futures.
