Today’s featured wine is the delightful James Blake 2011 Oakville Merlot. A hand-crafted, small batch, artisan wine from the skilled hands of James Scheller and Blake Griffin. This wine is lush, bold, incredibly delicious - and a real bargain!

For today only - and only while it lasts - you’ll enjoy over 37% off on this impressive wine from our friends at James Blake Wines.

Heady and very full on the nose, with dark cherry, plum, tobacco, blueberry, sweet spice, cocoa, bramble, dried earth, toasted anise, toasty oak and a hint of black pepper.

Darkly delicious on the palate with Strawberry licorice, red currant, Alpine strawberry, cherry, tobacco leaf, baking spice, cherry wood, dried fall leaves, minerals and black pepper.

We adore this elegant, flavor-packed wine. We’re certain that you will, too.
