2008 AuburnJames Napa Valley Meritage - Artist Series

2008 AuburnJames Napa Valley Meritage - Artist Series

The 2008 Napa Valley Artist Series Meritage was created by Jim Frost to exemplify the vintage while bringing Napa Valley alive amongst your senses.  Paired with the beauty and emotion captured by Linda Nearon in her work, “Spring In Niles” which graces this year’s label, seemingly every day in the Napa Valley is a great day!

Only 125 Cases Produced in 2008!

Swirl your glass and see the deep garnet color as it clings to the crystal.  Aromas of cocoa, vanilla, blackberry, and pepper now begin to reach your nose.  Pause for a moment to look at the label as you take your first sip.  Now just sit back and close your eyes as you experience the harvest breeze making its way through the valley carrying with it blueberry, licorice, and blackberry.  The 2008 Artist Series Meritage is a delicious treat for your senses!

First of the AuburnJames’ Artist Series, the 2008 is truly a work of art with its supple tannins and complex layers of Napa Valley flavors.  This wine sets a very high standard both visually and on the palate for those in the series that will follow in the years ahead. 
Suggested pairings include spicy cheeses, Brazilian BBQ, Tri Tip, and smoked meats.  On the Danville Tasting Room menu we suggest the Red Dragon, Point Reyes Blue, Smoked Gouda Sliders, and of course, the Chocolate Plate!

The 2008 Napa Valley Artist Series Meritage is AuburnJames’ signature Bordeaux blend!
