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

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: Ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon with wine glasses, chocolates, and corkscrew

2013 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Private Cellar Gift Set Gift Review

$399.95 at GiftTree.com

Giving a fine wine to a serious wine connoisseur is a lovely gesture but tricky business. Typically it's hard to buy for serious wine drinkers because they know more than you do about wine and about what they like. An exception to this rule is when you buy wine from the Fine Wine Collection at Gift Tree, where simply put, you can't go wrong. That said, these gifts are pricey and reflect the stature of the wines as well as the elegant and refined presentation you can expect in every Gift Tree gift.

Bonus: If Caymus Cab doesn't make you go weak in the knees, you can pick from a huge number of other ultra-premium well-known wines to feature in the wood gift box alongside the Riedel Vinum XL glasses and other goodies.

Gift Details

This superior wine gift presentation is guaranteed to impress. A bottle of Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is delivered in a striking Napa "wine box" presentation with a pair of Riedel Vinum XL glasses. This custom made wooden gift box is a joy in itself with its dual sliding lids and accompanying gift items. A grand impression is made from the moment the recipient opens the first lid to discover your personal gift card affixed with a wax seal.

Any discerning wine drinker will also recognize the quality of two Vinum XL Riedel glasses and appreciate the unique dachshund-shaped pewter cork toy. Delectable Chocolates from Sanders Fine Chocolatiers and a classic, handmade wine opener round out this superlative gift, leaving a lasting memory of your thoughtfulness.

About the 2012 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

  • The super fine 2012 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, from a superior year in the North Coast of California, shows incredible synergy of the elements: fruit, earth and wood. Everything here works so well, the wines high tannin levels are wrapped nicely with the wine's nicely extracted fruit. Make no mistake this wine represents Napa Valley royalty at its best.
  • A rich, dense ruby color, hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and cr?me de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine-grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.
  • Cellaring: Enjoy now through 2026.

Wine Gift Review: Three great wines and snacks in this wine gift basket

Cape Cod Luxury Wine Basket Gift Review

$339.95 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.
