2019 Marlenas from Reseda, Red Wine, Sierra Foothills

Everybody knows a Marlena. Cool, carefree, and just doesn't give a f*** what you think.

A fun, stylish wine, we blended together 50% Graciano, 44% Syrah, 6% Viognier, and plenty of good vibes, to create a red wine that everybody will dig, just like Marlena.

Returning to the Sierra de Montserrat Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills, we're back to work with Graciano. We love the punchy cherry elements of this variety, so we ollie-stomped the fruit before allowing whole-cluster fermentation to do its thing. We gave the same treatment to the Syrah, which we scored from the fabled Snows Crossing Vineyard. Lastly, because we're addicted to it, we cut in some Viognier, a white grape variety, that adds acidity that helps the red juice become the best version of themselves.

For us, it was love at first sight once we saw the shimmery garnet hues and tasted the cherry bomb flavors. Inhale violets, mulberry, and cedar. Exhale worry. As it transitions in the glass, like summer to fall, allspice and white pepper transform into a liquified cherry Jolly Rancher that rides on ‘til morning. Gonna pair with some carne asada street tacos and just chill for a while.

We collaborated with artists Tyler Spangler and Rows for this feel-good label depicting Marlena ollieing through an array of vibrant San Fernando Valley colors. Spangler is known for pushing the bounds of color; “A professor at my art school said my work looked like a high school yearbook on acid.” Lucky for us and you, we’re trippin’ on traditional photography metamorphosed with a vibrant, pastel sky. Our friend Rows creates hallucinatory digital collages and sick lo-fi beats.

From Marlena to you, wishing everyone smooth-skating into the weekend!

This was a rare Tank miss for me. Maybe it needs time in the bottle but the nose was one-note cedar and the tannins dominated the initial taste. Followed by a short, acidic cherry finish.

Opens tight, but if you decant it for an hour or so, you really get the full flavorful impact of the Graciano. Easy to drink and I think it will get even better over the coming months.

The label alone make this worthy of owning and given the grape locations make the wine even more special. The Sierra Foothills makes quality juice for wine sippers.

Let it breathe for an hour and it’s delicious. Complex flavors come around

Fantastic. Needs an hour or 2 to open up. I bought a few and going them sit for a year or so and re-try.

A friend gave me a bottle of 3 Marlenas and first of all, the label is cool and quirky and the wine is equally the same. I like the depth and approachable nature of this wine. It is multi-faceted and very drinkable. I have repurchased several times
