Three red wines from California’s 2001 Sonoma County vintage make up the second issuing on the J. Garcia label, produced under an agreement between Clos du Bois and the estate of late Grateful Dead singer/guitarist Jerry Garcia. Like last year’s inaugural bottling, the labels of the Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel wines are based on paintings by Garcia.
Production of the Cabernet and Merlot was limited to 12,000 cases, while only 8,400 cases of the Zinfandel have been released. Each carries a retail price of $15. More information can be found at jgarciawine.com.
