Duckhorn Decoy Wine Gift Basket Gift Review

$121.50 at Wine Country Gift Baskets

When it comes to giving wine gift baskets, we think it's better to give a gift with a name brand wine than a no-name wine. Why? Well, people have positive associations with specific brands, and no-name wines are often (though certainly not always!) of lesser quality... particularly the flood of wines on the market that are "brand only."

So, we like this gift basket! It has a well-known and well-respected winery in its contents, Duckhorn. The Decoy line was designed to be less cost intensive while still delivering well-made wine from high-quality grapes.

Want the real McCoy? Check out the Duckhorn Gift Basket at Wine Country Gift Baskets.

Gift Details

  • Decoy Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
  • Decoy Sonoma County Chardonnay (750ml)
  • Vanilla Sea Salt Caramels (4pc)

About Decoy Cabernet and Chardonnay

Duckhorn Decoy Sonoma Country cabernet sauvignon has aromas of loganberry and spearmint leading to intense flavors of blackberry and blueberry. Duckhorn Decoy Sonoma County Chardonnay boasts inviting orange blossom and honey aromas and lush tropical flavors.

Stella Rosa Semi-Sweet Wine Basket Gift Review

$82.80 at Wine Country Gift Baskets

There are very few wine gift baskets featuring sweet wine out there (we're mystified by this given the enormous number of sweet wine drinkers in the U.S.), and even fewer that feature good-quality sweet wine you'll be happy to give, but we found one! This Stella Rosa gift basket features two popular semi-sweet wines, one red wine and one white wine. In addition to the well-paired snacks, there are also a couple of useful accessories in the box, and the basket looks like it will fit right in to anyone's home storage scheme.

Stag's Leap Trio Wine Basket Gift Review

$250.00 at Wine Country Gift Baskets

When you're giving a wine gift, it's really hard to go wrong with Napa Cab, and this particular gift basket looks like a great value at $250 featuring three bottles from the world-famous and much-acclaimed Stag's Leap Winery. It includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Merlot, and a Chardonnay. Both the presentation of this basket and the assorted snacks and sweets that accompany the wine are upscale and paired for each wine, too.

Stags' Leap Winery cabernet has classic black cherry and plum flavors with interwoven notes of licorice, caramel and chocolate; chardonnay with aromas of lemon zest, tart white peach and pear, and merlot with juicy red fruit flavors integrated with notes of caramel, cinnamon and clove complete this trio from the Napa Valley.

Sparkling Moscato & Turkish Delight Gift Review

$49.95 at GiftTree.com

There are very few wine gift baskets featuring sweet wine out there (we're mystified by this given the enormous number of sweet wine drinkers in the U.S.), and even fewer that feature good-quality sweet wine you'll be happy to give, but we found one! This Ruffino Moscato d'Asti is a semi-sweet sparkling wine of fine quality. When pairing sugary confections with wine, it's always best to head for the sweet wines so they don't compete. Rather than compete, this pairing of sweet wine and Turkish Delight, a pistachio-based dessert, will make any evening bright and happy.

Gift Details

  • Roasted Pistachio Turkish Delights. One of the most traditional and well-recognized Turkish treats, Turkish Delight, has been served since Ottoman times. Our Turkish Delight is crafted exclusively by talented master confectioners using traditional methods and combines fresh fruits and nuts, without any preservatives or additives. Ideally served after meals or with coffee, this delicacy perfectly represents Turkish hospitality.
  • Ruffino Moscato d'Asti Notes of peaches and orange blossoms are complemented by hints of elderberry and floral notes in this fresh, fragrant and delicately effervescent wine.
  • Includes complimentary card with your personal message or greeting.

Want to send this Moscato without the Turkish Delight? You can send it in a neat wood crate, too, for just $34.95 plus shipping.

Send Wine Gifts Overseas Gift Review

Wine Gift Review: Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Pinot Noir, and Napa Bordeaux-Style BlendWine Gift: 4 Wines in a Gift Box

Classic Collection Gift Review

$150.00 at WINC

Wine tastings can be organized in many different ways, but it's always great to taste in a group and taste around a theme. In this case the theme would be California's best grapes from those grapes' best wine regions and the group would be you and seven of your besties while nibbling on an array of hors d'ourves in your living room. This selection of wine really showcases Napa and Sonoma winemaking and grapegrowing at the premium level and anyone who enjoys California would love to receive this assortment of wine. Did you see how sexy that packaging is? When we received our gift box we were VERY impressed with the quality of the presentation. This (and any gift from Winc) will make you look like a gifting champ!

Two ways to upgrade this gift! Try the Classic Tasting for Four ($280) which includes four stemless Riedel glasses and a fancy corkscrew or the Grand Tasting for Four ($500) which includes the glasses, the corkscrew, and a really cool decanter — a must for all red wine!

Gift Details

The Classic Collection showcases the same four bottles as the Classic Tasting for Four and Grand Tasting for Four ? but here, the spectacular wines themselves command your entire attention. Without additional accessories, your recipient can devote his or her complete concentration to marveling over these carefully crafted, curated beauties, the grapes for which grew in locations internationally recognized as the best for their respective varieties.

About the Wines

The 2013 Dime 100 is a blend of grapes from two Napa vineyards, handcrafted to demonstrate the ideal characteristics of each varietal. Aged in the barrel before bottling, it smoothly balances dark earth on the nose with red fruit on the palate and is deeply complex from start to finish. Perfumed aromas of vanilla extract, black cherry, and green peppercorn lead into flavors of juicy cherry and clove with a chalky, dry finish. Give this bold red the honor it?s due ? bring ?im out on an important occasion with a fancy meal. We suggest steak or a black truffle flatbread.

To craft the best representation of the Russian River Valley, our wine team sourced Chardonnay lots from three vineyards known for high-end, small-lot fruit. The grapes went directly to the press, and after fermentation the wine aged in neutral French oak barrels ? creating an elegant, layered Chardonnay with a richly perfumed nose, bright and juicy citrus on the palate, and a smooth finish with a hint of butter. With Salient, you get all the goods the ?queen of the grapes? has to offer, wrapped in an impeccable harmony of fruit, mouthwatering acidity, and complex neutral oak characters. This is your special-occasion, dinner-party Chardonnay, so pair it accordingly. Our suggestions? Lobster, caramelized onion tarts, and haloumi.

2014 was a standout year for Sonoma Pinot, and we're proud to offer the 2014 Porter & Plot® Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast), a stellar example of the vintage. After 10 months aging in French oak barrels, the wine carries bright notes of cinnamon, dark cherry, and cocoa powder.

At every opportunity, our winemaking partner for the 2013 Prismus® Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) chose to do things by hand, a dedication and devotion that yielded a complex wine with dark fruit on the nose and hints of dark chocolate and pecan on the palate.

Organic Wine Duo Wine Gift Crate Gift Review

$54.95 at GiftTree.com

Organic wine hasn't yet developed as a sought-after item in the gifting marketplace, so pickings are slim if you're on the hunt for a wine gift for your favorite earth-friendly or pesticide-conscious wine-lover. One of our favorite gifting sites does have a lovely wine gift featuring wines from Bonterra Vineyards in California. A red and white wine are presented in a stylish wood crate that can be reused. These wines are widely available and there's a good chance your recipient already knows about them, so they'll be pleased that you put so much thought into this wine gift.

Gift Details

Expressing the purity and intensity of varietal character, the Bonterra Vineyard of Mendocino County is a pioneer in organic wine growing. In this elegant gift, Bonterra presents their toasty chardonnay and bold, rich cabernet sauvignon. One bottle each of Bonterra Chardonnay, and Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon. These fine Mendocino County wines are presented in our enduring signature wine crate. A complimentary card is included with your gift.

As with most gifts from Gift Tree, you can personalize it! Complete the personalization option during checkout and we'll add an engraved, silver-plated hang tag to your gift. Select one or two lines of up to 18 characters per line, or choose an elegant three character monogram.

Organic not that important?

$39.95 at GiftTree.com

If you don't have a big budget but still want to send a nice quality, and nicely presented, wine gift, we strongly recommend the single-bottle wine gift crates at Gift Tree. Starting at $34.95 for the sparkling Italian Moscato on up to $74.95 for the Antica Napa Valley Chardonnay, you can't go wrong. There are also red wines available as single bottles in a wood gift crate. The customer service and personalization options also increase the giftworthiness of these fine wines.

Gift Details

Conundrum stands out as a distinctly different, non-traditional white wine blend. We often hear the word "exotic" when described. It's a fitting portrayal; there is no other wine quite like this complex wine that lives up to its name. Personalize It! Complete the personalization option during checkout and we'll add an engraved, silver-plated hang tag to your gift. Select one or two lines of up to 18 characters per line, or choose an elegant three character monogram.

Light & Sweet Sippers Gift Review

$39.95 at The California Wine Club

This gift offers UNPRECEDENTED wine gift value. Not everyone loves sweeter wines, but for those who do (think of your mom, your wife, your sister, pretty much all of the women you know who aren't explicitly sweet wine avoiders), this gift really can't be beat. Margerum and Kiara are excellent wineries in California's Central Coast (one's in Santa Barbara County, one's in Paso Robles) and you get FOUR wines for $53.95 when you factor in shipping! Did I mention sweet wine gifts are really hard to come by? They are!

About this Gift

Enjoy two bottles each of these fabulous wines: Margerum Wine Company 2013 Santa Barbara County Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc. Tasting Notes: Intense varietal aromas of juicy fruit, honey and ripe melon. A luscious mouthfeel of sweet, lengthily rich Meyer lemon with a clean, dry finish. This wine will age while gracefully developing nectar-like aromatics, becoming richer and honeyed. Only 200 cases produced. Retail Price: $26. Le Vigne Winery 2014 Kiara Bella Moscato. Tasting Notes: A bouquet of strawberries and Charentais melon merge with a palate that is crisp and balanced, with a light fruitiness and a touch of bubble gum. Final Blend: 77% Muscat of Alexandria and 23% Orange Muscat. Retail price: $12.

Get two each of these lovely wines (for a total of four bottles) for just $39.95 plus s/h.

Best Case Scenario Gift Review

$865.00 at WINC

When an over-the-top luxury wine gift is in order, you are sure to impress any wine lover with this gift. Four amazing wines (times 3 to make a case), a set of four Riedel stemless wine glasses, a killer corkscrew, and a Riedel decanters (a must for all red wines, really, trust us!) packed in the most elegant gift boxes on the market, designed to ensure everything arrives in one piece. If this showed up at our door, you'd be our new bestie.

Gift Details

This gift does it all: 12 bottles of outstanding wine selected to showcase the best winemakers and appellations in California, four Riedel glasses, a Riedel decanter that will bring the most out of the 2013 Prismus® Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) and the 2013 Dime 100 Reserve Red Blend (Napa Valley), and an elegant corkscrew from L?Atelier du Vin. It says it all, too: Happy Holidays, Congratulations, Thank You, I Love You. Whatever message you want to communicate, this is the vehicle. By any standard, it?s the best-case scenario.

About the Wines

The 2013 Dime 100 is a blend of grapes from two Napa vineyards, handcrafted to demonstrate the ideal characteristics of each varietal. Aged in the barrel before bottling, it smoothly balances dark earth on the nose with red fruit on the palate and is deeply complex from start to finish. Perfumed aromas of vanilla extract, black cherry, and green peppercorn lead into flavors of juicy cherry and clove with a chalky, dry finish. Give this bold red the honor it?s due ? bring ?im out on an important occasion with a fancy meal. We suggest steak or a black truffle flatbread.

To craft the best representation of the Russian River Valley, our wine team sourced Chardonnay lots from three vineyards known for high-end, small-lot fruit. The grapes went directly to the press, and after fermentation the wine aged in neutral French oak barrels ? creating an elegant, layered Chardonnay with a richly perfumed nose, bright and juicy citrus on the palate, and a smooth finish with a hint of butter. With Salient, you get all the goods the ?queen of the grapes? has to offer, wrapped in an impeccable harmony of fruit, mouthwatering acidity, and complex neutral oak characters. This is your special-occasion, dinner-party Chardonnay, so pair it accordingly. Our suggestions? Lobster, caramelized onion tarts, and haloumi.

2014 was a standout year for Sonoma Pinot, and we're proud to offer the 2014 Porter & Plot® Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast), a stellar example of the vintage. After 10 months aging in French oak barrels, the wine carries bright notes of cinnamon, dark cherry, and cocoa powder.

At every opportunity, our winemaking partner for the 2013 Prismus® Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) chose to do things by hand, a dedication and devotion that yielded a complex wine with dark fruit on the nose and hints of dark chocolate and pecan on the palate.

Private Cult Wine Tasting Gift Review

$200.00 at If Only

When the cost of one of these bottles is typically $300-3000, it's easy to see why mere mortals rarely have access to the types of Cult Wines being poured at this ultra exclusive wine tasting experience. That's why this wine tasting makes our list of best wine club experience gifts! At $100 per person for 2-12 people, this one-hour tasting will make you feel like you're among the wealthiest people in the world who can enjoy the most limited-production sought-after wines produced.

Bonus: the venue for this tasting is where Napa Valley's winemakers go to hang out with each other and it has the vibe of a late-night restaurant where the best chefs go to unwind after a long night in the kitchen.

Wine Gift Review: Your choice of luxury Champagne, Osetra caviar, mother of pearl serving dish and spoons to wow them.Wine Gift: Luxury Champagne & Caviar Tasting

Ultimate Champagne & Caviar Gift Gift Review

$599.95 at GiftTree.com

Nothing says luxurious like Champagne and caviar (except maybe if it came in a gold-plated box, but that's a bit much, no?) and this gift presentation really punches up the excitement factor for such a generous bestowal. If Veuve Cliquot isn't your favorite luxury champagne, you have several more to choose from (see the Gift Details section). While they're sipping on that Champagne they'll be creating perfect mouthfuls of Osetra caviar and creme fraiche on top of handmade Russian blini, served on elegant mother-of-pearl plates with mother-of-pearl spoons (these are necessary for caviar because other serving materials interact poorly with the caviar, ruining the taste).

Gift Details

  • A bottle of Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Champagne 2006
  • 2 oz of the finest sustainably harvested Osetra caviar, packed fresh and guaranteed. Held at 26 degrees until shipment, it arrives in our unique chill pack designed specially for this gift
  • Mother-of-pearl and sterling silver caviar service set for two
  • 8 oz chilled Creme Fraiche
  • 36-pack Russian Handmade Bilinis
  • A personal gift card held in place on one of the interior lids with a beautiful wax seal
  • You will be given the opportunity to select an exact delivery date. If sending to a residence, we will make a discreet telephone call to verify that someone 21 yrs or older will be home to accept the delivery.

Don't Love Veuve?

No problem! Gift Tree has an amazing selection of premium Champagne and sparkling wine to choose from. You can pick any of the following bubblies (note: prices vary depending on what you pick): Dom Perignon 2004, Dom Perignon 2006, Dom Perignon P2, Kripta Cava, Krug Brut 2000, Krug Brut 2003, Cristal Brut 2006, Perrier-Jouet Fleur Belle Epoque, or stick with the fantabulous 2006 Grand Dame from Veuve.

Wine Gift Review: Cava is like Champagne from Spain, and this gift basket pairs that cava with chocolate trufflesWine Gift: Sparkling Wine Gift Basket with chocolate truffles

Champagne* and Truffles Gift Basket Gift Review

$69.95 at GiftTree.com

* Important note: This gift does not actually contain Champagne (which only comes from the Champagne region of France), it contains a different kind of dry sparkling wine, called Cava, from Spain. We've included this gift here because not everyone cares where their bubbly comes from or can afford real Champagne, but that's no excuse to not enjoy a sparkling wine from time to time.

It's rare to meet someone who doesn't like bubbly or chocolate, so this gift makes a lovely presentation of both. It includes chocolate treats from the world's leading chocolatiers and even a little fruit, to boot. And, as with all gifts from Gift Tree, this gift can be personalized to add that extra touch.

Gift Details

  • Note: more than any other company, Gift Tree loads up on details on their website. This is a sampling of details but you can get much more if you visit their site.
  • Crisp Spanish Cava Segura Viudas Brut Reserva. Segura Viudas is Spain's most famous Cava, and the second most popular sparkling wine served in restaurants around the world.

Henri's Reserve is a boutique Champagne seller (and importer) featuring family-owned grower Champagnes typically not available in the U.S. For a true Champagne lover, any of their products would make an amazing gift, but this one rises above the others, promising to let them share their Champagne goodies with 5-7 friends at a tasting party.

Champagne Club Gift Review

$49.00 at Invino

No list of Champange gifts could be considered complete without at least one Champagne of the month club. Wine clubs are our specialty at this website and we've reviewed a few Champagne/Sparkling wine clubs (they're rare), but we think this one makes the best gift subscription.

inClub is a part of Invino, a flash sale site that seeks out amazing wine deals and shares them with their subscribers. Their wine clubs roll up the best of their inventory and ship it out monthly without requiring customers to place an order. It's full service and completely bespoke (custom made for each customer).

Gift Details

  • The Invino Sourcing Team has taken on the terrible task of uncovering rare, unique and intriguing Champagnes just for this club (it's a very difficult job, but they are willing to do anything for their Members...). Each wine selected tells a great story, and fulfills the promise of ultra-luxury Champagne.
  • On the gift page, choose the Champagne Club in Step 1
  • Choose your price: $49, $89, or $149 per shipment
  • Choose your quality: "every day", "upscale & premium," or "special occasion."
  • Choose your delivery schedule: monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly
  • Choose between email or postal gift notice

Important note: Invino is a different kind of wine club, where once you choose the monthly price and the level of wine you want, they work their best to get as many bottles in each box as they can, but there isn't a fixed number of bottles per shipment.

The best part of a wine club membership from Invino is that it's 100% customizable. If your receipient wants to expand their selection to include sparkling wines from other regions, it's easy to go online and make that change.

Invino Ships Wine to:
Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Dist of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Missouri, Minnesota, Mississippi, Michigan, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Wyoming

Veuve Clicquot Gift Basket Gift Review

$135.00 at Wine Country Gift Baskets

We love giving Champagne gifts and this one is one of the more reasonably-priced gifts of its kind. Often gift baskets cost much more than the wine's retail price, because of sourcing and gift packaging, but this one is very fairly priced. Plus, it's Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label — the go-to in nearly every restaurant and bar that people never treat themselves to at home.

Gift Details

  • Veuve Clicquot Champagne (750ml)
  • Pirouline Chocolate Hazelnut Wafer Cookies (3.25oz)

Kripta Brut Cava & Handmade Wooden Vase Gift Review

$199.95 at GiftTree.com

Hey! How'd this get in here?! It's not Champagne! Well, no it's not, but isn't it super cool??

This exceptional bottle of Gran Reserva Cava from Spain comes in a very special bottle that can't stand up on its own. To help it stand up, Gift Tree has paired with a handmade wooden wine vase (which can be used for regular bottles, too), a piece of South East Asian art crafted from sustainably harvested Tamarind Tree.

About the Kripta Brut Nature Cava Gran Reserva 2007

  • Rated 92 points by The Wine Advocate
  • Tasting Notes: Straw color with golden hues. Slow-evolving, fine and persistent bubbles. Aroma: Clean and bright. Sweet aroma with creamy notes of ripe fruit and vanilla; slightly toasted with a balmy smoked background and good complexity. Finish: Fine and elegant first taste with perfectly integrated bubbles. Pleasant evolution with a silky froth against a vanilla, ripe fruit, toasted and truffle background. Very long and complex aftertaste where vanilla stands out on a toasted and butter background resulting from the long aging process. Perfect for pairing with smoked cheeses, cod, and caviar.
  • Blend: 45% Macabeu, 20% Xare'lo, 35% Parellada.
  • Cellaring: With proper cellaring it should give drinking pleasure through 2018+.

Wine Gift Review: Three great wines and snacks in this wine gift basketWine Gift: Opus One Wine Gift Basket

Cape Cod Luxury Wine Basket Gift Review

$569.95 at GiftTree.com

In general we're a fan of wine gift baskets that have high-quality wines with designated regions and vineyards, and where the wines aren't brands at factory-style wineries, but rather actual working wineries operating under their own name. Gift Tree has some of the former, but plenty of options with the latter — like this gift basket which comes with Opus One Overture (an acclaimed wine) and two other excellent wines. But what Gift Tree often gets right is the other goodies in the basket — grilled antipasti, habanero pepper jelly, Ghirardelli and Godiva chocolates, and more.

Bonus: If Opus One Overture doesn't turn your crank, you can pick from a huge number of other ultra-premium well-known wines to feature in your personalized gift basket.

Gift Details

The Opus One Overture will be presented with Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Karia Chardonnay and Willamette Valley Vineyards Founders' Reserve Pinot Noir. The elegant keepsake container offers grilled vegetable antipasti, habanero pepper jelly, sweet and savory gourmet popcorn, Ghirardelli and Godiva luxury chocolates, strawberry pome frais and much more.

About Opus One Overture NV

  • In keeping with the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, Opus One produces a fine second wine called Overture. When these wine lots are afforded additional time in barrel, in combination with the added flexibility of blending across multiple vintages, the final wine achieves a remarkable elegance and complexity that represents a superb expression of our estate. This is Overture.
  • Tasting Notes: Overture displays a vibrant garnet color with expressive aromas of fresh red fruit. Notes of bright cherry and red currant are underpinned by more earthy tones of ground cocoa, cedar and vanilla. Extended barrel aging gives the wine an elegant texture accentuated by round tannins and a soft mouthfeel.
  • Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec.
  • Cellaring: Enjoy upon release, or cellar through 2025.

Wine Gift Review: Three great wines and snacks in this wine gift basketWine Gift: Groth Reserve Cab Gift Basket

The Hamptons Luxury Wine Basket Gift Review

$479.95 at GiftTree.com

In general we're a fan of wine gift baskets that have high-quality wines with designated regions and vineyards, and where the wines aren't brands at factory-style wineries, but rather actual working wineries operating under their own name. Gift Tree has some of the former, but plenty of options with the latter — like this gift basket which comes with the 2012 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (an acclaimed wine) and two other excellent wines from Cakebread Cellars and Sokol Blosser. But what Gift Tree often gets right is the other goodies in the basket — smoked salmon, brie, maille mustard, Godiva chocolates, and more.

Bonus: If Groth Cab doesn't make you thirsty, you can pick from a huge number of other ultra-premium well-known wines to feature in your personalized gift basket.

Gift Details

A bottle of Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is presented with Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay and Sokol Blosser Pinot Noir. An elegant hammered-bronze chiller also beautifully displays Signature Saravaniov smoked salmon, Auberge Brie cheese with a wood handled epicure cheese knife, Maille stone ground Dijon mustard, luxury chocolates from Godiva, Guylian and Ghirardelli, plus many more delectable provisions.

About 2012 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

  • Great aroma development, phenomenal extraction and unctuous flavors were the result of patience and creativity. The big crop required a great deal of flexibility and ingenuity in the cellar as tank, barrel and cellar space became squeezed toward the end of harvest. But we all endured and made some memorable wines from a spectacular vintage. - Winemaker's Notes
  • A dark, mysterious wine, Groth 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve possesses superb depth and delineation. Sweet herbs, cedar, tobacco and leather add nuance on a virile, imposing finish supported by beams of tannin. This big, rich Cabernet is going to require at least a few years in the cellar, but it is impressive, even at this early stage.
  • Cellaring: Enjoy now, or cellar through 2020.

About the 2013 Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon

  • The textbook vintage allowed Winemaker Steve Devitt to weave together a Cabernet Sauvignon that balances highly aromatic, well-delineated Mount Veeder fruit with saturated flavors, polish and poise lent by our valley floor estates. Aged 22 months in 85% new Chateau Traditional French oak barrels, Darioush has hit their stride, producing splendid concentration and power, compelling freshness and graceful complexity.
  • Tasting Notes: Generous and concentrated on the palate, this dynamic wine delivers its signature of alluring, savory blueberry and blackberry fruit, freshly ground espresso and aromas of anise, dried sage and cigar-box. A satisfyingly persistent finish of dark fruits unfolds to reveal notes of graphite, toasted hazelnut and seamless, finely-knit tannins.
  • Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot

Pinot Noir is a finicky grape that make sublime wine for those of us who fall for it head over heels. Premium Pinot Noir from California's best wine regions doesn't come cheap and it doesn't make sense to buy just any old Pinot. These Pinots are produced by pedigreed winemakers who are showing off their love of a particular region in each of the selections. This six-pack, with three each of two special Pinot Noirs (one from Mendocino and one from the Sonoma Coast) are sure to impress any California Pinot Lover — and they'll be introduced to a great new way to buy high-end Napa wines to boot!

About These Wines

Pinot Noir 6-Pack Contains: 3 Bottles - 2013 North Coast All Stars Mendocino Pinot Noir 3 Bottles - 2014 Wine Dark Sea Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is a finicky grape. Yields are miniscule and making compelling wine is tough. It doesn?t grow well everywhere. But when it does find the right terroir, that unique combination of sun, soil, and exposure, the result can be truly magical and distinct. Case in point, these two examples from GrapeSeed. First, Doug Stewart demonstrates why Mendocino might be producing some of the most exciting Pinot Noir on the market today with his North Coast All Stars offering, made from two spectacular vineyards from Anderson Valley and the Mendocino Ridge. Then James MacPhail shows his mastery of Pinot Noir from the extreme Sonoma Coast with his first GrapeSeed offering, Wine Dark Sea. These wines cannot be found in any retail store and are sold exclusively by GrapeSeed.
