2011 AuburnJames Artist Series "Burst of Beauty" Napa Valley
An award winning Napa Valley wine, our 2011 has become an all time favorite within the Artist Series vertical. Winemaker Jim Frost blended all five of the traditional Bordeaux varieties to create a wine that will delight your senses. Winning the Gold medal at the California Cab Shootout in 2016, this wine is just now approaching its peak while it displays the symmetry, balance, and density that you expect from an exceptional wine from Napa Valley. That said, just like the fragrant Cereus flower, with less than 40 cases remaining in our cellar, as they say, "by morning it will be gone."

Tasting Cottage Favorite!
On our label, American Impressionist, Linda Nearon captures the Night Blooming Cereus, in Burst of Beauty. One of the rarest of flowers, the Cereus is just that as for one night only, typically during the August super moon, it opens its fragrant flower shortly after midnight and for a fleeting few hours is in all its glory until wilting and gone by sunrise. As they say, Life is too short, so let’s all be reminded to celebrate those special moments in time. Thank you Linda for your friendship and talent in capturing this beautiful flower!
