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: VineBox Wine Subscription

Three-Month Wine Tasting Subscription Gift Review

$81.00 at VineBox

Most of the wine gifts in this part of our site are one-time gifts, by design. But this wine subscription slips in because it's so unique and affordable. You can give a 3-month wine gift for just $81... and the wines are great.

You can choose red, white, or mixed — and they can change that later if they want to. This gift is perfect for people who would like a little wine during the week but rarely have more than a glass and don't want to open a bottle, lest they waste the remainder. Single-serve wine gifts... we love it!

Gift Details

  • Three "glasses" 10 cl each (3.3 oz)
  • Nicely-designed gift box
  • Personalized gift card

Since the VineBox is a wine club gift, we thought we’d share the pricing options if you want to spend more. If you're buying for a couple, we suggest "doubling it" which saves you 5%.

  • 3-month tasting for 1: $82; for 2: $153.90
  • 6-month tasting for 1: $156; for 2: $296.40
  • 12-month tasting for 1: $300; for 2: $570

Wine Gift Review: Napa Bordeaux-Style Blend and Artisinal Caramel Popcorn

Art of Caramel and Dime 100 Gift Review

$50.00 at WINC

When giving a gift of wine to a red wine drinker, it's really important to give good quality wine. Every gift on this website has been handpicked to delight a true wine lover, but sometimes it's challenging to find such wine gifts under $75. One of the reasons we love Winc wine gifts is that they understand how to build great wine gifts for reasonable gift budgets. The Dime 100 is a wonderful Napa Bordeaux-style red wine sure to please anyone who loves Cabernet or other big reds. The Art of Caramel popcorn is sooooo delicious, and the gift presentation is exceptional, too.

Gift Details

Remember the first time you had Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream or a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte? Get ready to gift a similar a-ha moment of flavor explorations and delight. Using fresh spices and premium liquors, The Art of Caramel elevates caramel corn to an artistic adventure that balances sweet against salty on a canvas of all-natural air popped popcorn. Each of the featured flavors - Kentucky Bourbon Black Pepper, Vanilla Bean Cocoa Nib, Bananas Foster with Dark Rum and Mayan Chile Chocolate - bring out a different side of the 2013 DIME 100 Meritage blend, which itself is a Bordeaux-style masterpiece.

About the Wine

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 'em out on an important occasion with a fancy meal. We suggest steak or a black truffle flatbread.

Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Dist of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Wine Gift Review: WineAwesomeness One-Time Box

Themed Six-Bottle Wine Box Gift Gift Review

$89.00 at Wine Awesomeness

Aside from having a playful brand, Wine Awesomness is a self-described "monthly wine journey curated for adventurous souls." Between droolworthy photography and well-written wine ed. in their monthly magazine called "The Back Label," they really do take you on a trip to a new wine region each month — if only voyeuristically, as the membership fees don't include airfare and lodging.

Generally we don't have high expectations for wine quality at this price point, especially where free shipping is involved, but we were actually quite impressed with the quality of the wines in our shipment. It would be hard to find wines this good at this price at a local store, or even from another wine club. We've only received one shipment so far, so it's possible we got lucky... we'll keep this review up to date if we find the quality slips somewhere along the way.

Gift Details

  • Three bottles of affordable, good-quality wine picked to match a monthly theme
  • The Back Label wine magazine which explains the theme and includes both recipe and music pairings!
  • Nicely-designed gift box
  • Choose a day to email a gift notice, but buy it any day (if you're buying recipient-managed) or gift message if you're handling all of the details yourself — this will become clear when you are on their website.
  • The price is $64.90 if you buy a recipient-managed gift because they want to make sure you've covered their sales tax. If you're only a buying a one-time gift we recommend handling all of the details yourself.

Since WineAwesomeness is a wine club gift, too, we thought we’d share the pricing options if you want to spend more:

  • 3-month subscription: $135
  • 6-month subscription: $270
  • 12-month subscription: $540

Wine Awesomeness Ships Wine to:
Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Dist of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Send Wine Gifts Overseas Gift Review
