Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 78% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Other Varieties

The 2004 North Coast Merlot has deep plum-red color and spicy black currant, strawberry, cherry, leather, cedar, tobacco and cinnamon aromas and ripe bing cherry jam and plum flavors finishing with supple, approachable tannins.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment to roast duck breast and bok choy with a star anise and red wine reduction.

My Notes:

About J. Garcia:

Jerry Garcia made his home in Northern California, near the lush vineyards of Sonoma County wine country. J. Garcia wines were created to celebrate Jerry's musical and artistic creativity - and lifelong love of art and wine.

Each release of J. Garcia wine features label art created from a unique piece of Jerry's striking and engaging artistic creations. The wines themselves are made by another talented artisan – winemaker Erik Olsen of the award-winning Clos du Bois winery in Sonoma County. The J. Garcia series is handcrafted from exceptional fruit sourced in the North Coast wine region, and reflects the rich, colorful quality of Jerry's art and music.
