The Quintessential Six-Bottle Taste of Napa Gift Review

$289.00 at Wine Access

On sale! Save 10% on this exclusive wine gift

There are, to be clear, many different classes of wine and they are sold in many different price ranges. One of the ways to identify higher-quality wine is to note whether the wine region and vineyard(s) are on the bottle. Another way is to know about the winemaker and his or her winemaking experience and philosophy. Before any bottle of wine is sold by Wine Access, these attributes are studied in depth — and of course the wine has to be good.

This half-case of Napa wine from Wine Access meets all of their strict requirements for wine they want to sell, but they've also paired up six beautiful wines to showcase the magic of Napa — and then they offered up a tidy little discount for the six-pack.

This exclusive wine gift set includes some incredible selections:

  • 2014 Teeter Totter Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley "A stunning value from Wine Spectator’s 2014 “dream vintage.” Eight-time 100-point winemaker Benoit Touquette leveraged his network of exceptional vineyard sources from Yountville, St. Helena, Pritchard Hill, and Calistoga to create a Cabernet that could stand shoulder to shoulder with high-priced, high-profile Napa counterparts — for under $100. Robert Parker called this opulent, lip-smacking, black-fruited gem “heady, round” and “hedonistic.” A few prominent wine directors of 3-Michelin-starred restaurants have their allocation. In-the-know collectors have already laid down cases in their cellars."
  • 2014 Purlieu Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley "Robert Parker called the 2014 Purlieu Cabernet Sauvignon a “real knock-out” and a “superb example of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon” in his 94-point review. The winemaking superstar behind this praise is Philippe Melka protégé Julien Fayard... His master craftsmanship is on full display with this blockbuster Cabernet fruit drawn off a quartet of all-star vineyards — Beckstoffer To Kalon, Missouri Hopper, Martinez, and Teucer. Napa Cabernets of this quality and pedigree usually command triple digits — this one from Wine Spectator’s “dream vintage” does not."
  • 2013 Nicholson Jones Chardonnay Dolly Hill Vineyard Carneros "Fayard’s 2013 Nicholson Jones Chardonnay comes from the special Dolly Hill portion of the top-flight Truchard Vineyard in Carneros, also prized by Nickel and Nickel for their $50 Truchard Chardonnay. Fayard’s deft touch has yielded a rich, mineral, yet mouth-filling unoaked Chardonnay, as he says himself, “it has the palate weight and mouth coating viscosity of a Grand Cru Chablis, and in a similar sense is both big, yet refreshingly light on its feet.”"
  • 2014 Nichols Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley "After tasting Britt Nichols’ 2013 Rutherford Cab, we didn’t think the young enologist could climb much higher. Then came 2014, the year Wine Spectator called a “dream vintage,” and Robert Parker deemed, “excellent.” Squared up against it’s older sibling, Britt’s 2014 gets the nod. Tasted in a lineup of Rutherford heavyweights with higher profiles and much higher price tags, Britt’s 2014 still holds its own. That’s because it’s made from the same heavyweight fruit — a historic vineyard just a stone’s throw from Caymus and Staglin. As Britt told us, “Cabernet bottlings from this estate reach $125...easily.”"
  • 2015 Matthiasson White Blend "The French Laundry. Gramercy Tavern. Marea. Each of these titans of the restaurant world makes sure its wine list has room for Steve Matthiasson’s coveted Napa Valley White. With his 2015 Matthiasson White Blend, The San Francisco Chronicle “Winemaker of the Year” has given ample reason why such room is made. But this rich, vivacious white is near-impossible to find — especially since a 2008 vintage that caused Robert Parker to wonder, “Why are there not more California white wines such as this?”"
  • 2013 Hall Napa Valley "Coeur" Cabernet Sauvignon "Robert Parker dubbed Napa’s 2013 vintage “the greatest vintage in 37 years.” For HALL Wines, it yielded “Coeur” — a stunning, powerhouse Cabernet Parker called “full-bodied, opulent and fleshy,” before pinning on 93 points, which sold out swiftly when we first offered it. HALL stands tall among the steadily growing number of allocation-only wineries in Napa Valley... Dozens of their wines have appeared on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 lists, while over 140 HALL Wines have earned scores between 90 and 100 points."

Gift Details

There’s no denying that Napa Valley is America’s premier wine-producing region, and that the best wines in the United States hail from the pristine manicured rows that line the valley from the Vaca Mountains to the Mayacamas. We’ve gathered together four wines that we believe deliver the quintessential Napa experience. From bold, rich, heady, and hedonistic Cabernets to a Chardonnay from one of the valley’s greatest winemakers — this is your four-bottle ticket to getting lost in the paradise of exquisite Napa Valley wines.

Wine bottles included in this gift:

  • White - 2013 Nicholson Jones Chardonnay, Dolly Hill Vineyard, Carneros
  • White - 2015 Matthiasson White Blend
  • Red - 2014 Teeter Totter Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Red - 2014 Purlieu Cabernet Sauvignion
  • Red - 2014 Nicholas Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
  • Red - 2013 Hall Napa Valley "Coeur" Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Gift Review: Wine paired with artisanal salami and cheese

Wine Down Box Gift Review

$70.00 at Wine Down Box

Wine pairings are notoriously tricky, but when the food and wine are paired perfectly, something magical happens. It doesn’t hurt when the foods you’ve paired are classic cheese and charcuterie! What we especially love, in addition to artisanal cheese and salami, is the quality of the wines. With a gift box like this you might be concerned that it’s just a gimmick, but in this case, these are carefully selected goods worth every penny.

We’ve received a number of shipments from Wine Down Box and we’ve been delighted with each and every one of them. As long as you’re not buying for a vegetarian (or vegan), this is a great gift for most wine lovers.

Gift Details

Each Wine Down Box includes:

  • Limited Production California Wine - (1 btl.)
  • Fresh Artisan Cheese - (~8 oz.)
  • Delicious Charcuterie - (~2-5 oz.)
  • Hand Made Crackers - (2 oz.)
  • Wine and Cheese Pairing Sheet (pairing specific)
  • Personalized Gift Note (optional)

Wine Down Box is actually a subscription service, but they let you buy one box as a gift (what we’ve listed here). If you’re interested in the subscription instead, here are the details:

Wine Gift Review: Bubbles & Rosé Wine Shipment

Bubbles & Rosé Box Gift Review

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.

This duo of California wine is actually just a one-time shipment from an outstanding monthly wine club, the Gold Series of Gold Medal Wine Club. We’ve received many shipments of wine from this company over the years and we are confident that for the money you can’t give a better one-time wine gift than this duo with the upgraded gift box.

When we first saw this line-up of Pinot Noirs it was all we could do stop ourselves from snagging one for personal drinking. Our cellar is full so we didn't buy one, but we really think you should give this is a wine gift to anyone who loves Pinot Noir or wants to know more about it.

This exclusive wine gift set includes some incredible "cult" selections:

  • 2014 Domaine de La Côte Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills "Domaine de la Côte is perhaps California’s most talked about fine Pinot Noir, and the buzz is only getting louder with the release of this 2014 masterpiece. Decanter pinned on 97 points naming it their top California Pinot Noir of the 2014 vintage. “Outstanding,” says Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate of La Côte."
  • 2014 Red Car Wine Company Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast "They farm organically and biodynamically, which shows a commitment from the producer toward the long-term health of the vines and the land, and that speaks volumes. Red Car Wine Company was named to this year’s list of Wine & Spirits “Top 100 Wineries.” At $45 per bottle for this 93-point mineral-driven Sonoma Coast Pinot, now is the time to get acquainted with Red Car before demand outpaces supply."
  • 2016 Scribe Pinot Noir, Sonoma Valley "Founded by two brothers and fourth-generation farmers, Adam and Andrew Mariani, Scribe is one of the hippest young brands in Northern California. They’ve gained a lot of respect in the wine industry for producing high-quality, collectable wines that are accompanied by an infectious sense of fun and an attitude of humility. When visiting the property, there is a focus on wine as an accompaniment to food, highlighted in this Pinot Noir by virtue of the intriguing array of exotic spice notes, a refreshing acidity, and the ripe and round mouthfeel." From the winemaker, “This Pinot Noir is from a vineyard about a mile down the road,” Andrew said during our visit on a balmy Saturday afternoon. “We started planting it in 2007, and we’ve fallen in love with the fruit it’s producing. Clones are 50/50 Martini and Pommard. The soil is rich Huichica loam soil. The climate is slightly cooler, Carneros-like, which means ripening is often elongated. In the 2016 growing season, which was paced perfectly, it made for some of the richest, most beautiful Pinots we’ve produced yet.”

Gift Details

Pinot Noir is one of my most revered varieties. It has a quiet elegance, expressing a full array of aromas and flavors, while possessing a more delicate structure. It has the ability to clearly transmit the terroir in which it’s grown and the natural high acidity and soft tannins make it a favorite food-pairing wine.

I created this set of Pinot Noirs to showcase three wineries that all have an unwavering commitment to producing world-class wines. Their painstaking efforts in the vineyards to carefully select the best grapes is matched only by their devotion to the highest quality production in the winery. These are wines that everyone should know about, but with such small production and increasing demand, they have become even more difficult to acquire.

- Vanessa Conlin, Vice President of Wine, Wine Access

Iconic Winemakers’ Passion Projects Gift Review

$209.00 at Wine Access

On sale! Save $45 on this exclusive wine gift

Our own experience with winemakers' side projects tells us this is a really fun half-case of wine to receive. One ofthe truly awesome aspects of these "side projects" is that premium fruit and premium winemaking are still in play, but not at premium prices — and these types of wineries are often touted by sommeliers for this very reason.

This exclusive wine gift set includes some exciting selections:

  • Winemaker: Charles Thomas
    Wine: 2014 Cornerstone Cellars Benchlands Cabernet Sauvignon
    "Opus One. Robert Mondavi. Cardinale, Lokoya, Verité, and Quintessa. The producers on winemaker Charles Thomas’s C.V. are the marquee names of California Cabernet. Robert Parker calls Thomas “brilliant” and a “star winemaker,” and Wine Spectator simply calls him “one of California’s best winemakers.” The 2014 Cornerstone Cellars Benchlands Cabernet is the handiwork of Thomas and his winemaking partner at Cornerstone, Kari Auringer, whose own resume includes a Scarecrow 100-pointer. Their combined expertise makes them one of the most formidable winemaking duos in Napa, and the 2014 “dream vintage” delivered perfect fruit for this ripe and luxurious Cabernet. You’ll find it at Napa’s Morimoto restaurant for a whopping $29 per glass."
  • Winemaker: Benoit Touquette
    Wine: 2014 Teeter Totter Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
    "Eight-time 100-point winemaker Benoit Touquette honed his viticultural skills under Andy Erickson at Ovid, Arietta and Screaming Eagle, and he sharpened his palate through the expertise of his mentor, Michel Rolland — the famed “Flying Winemaker” who has cranked out 100-pointers for the likes of Harlan, Bond, and Araujo. Touquette leveraged his network of exceptional vineyard sources from Yountville, St. Helena, Pritchard Hill, and Calistoga to create this Cabernet that could stand shoulder to shoulder with high-priced, high-profile Napa counterparts — for under $100.
  • Winemaker: Helen Keplinger
    Wine: 2015 Vermillion Red Wine
    "A winemaker cannot live by Cabernet alone, though one winemaker — Helen Keplinger — absolutely could, if that was her desire. Just look at this Napa Valley superstar’s stewardship of Grace Family Vineyards (California’s original cult Cabernet winery) along with past success at Arrow & Branch, Bryant Family, Fort Ross and Kenzo Estate. In 2012, Keplinger was honored as Food & Wine Magazine’s “Winemaker of the Year” and just two years later, she landed on the cover of Wine Spectator. But the great press wasn’t just for her mastery of Bordeaux varieties; instead, the critical spotlight shined equally on Grenache and the other Rhône-centric wines. At $35 per bottle, Keplinger’s 2015 Vermillion Red is a stunning example of what happens when a Cabernet-expert goes rogue-Rhône."
  • Winemaker: Mia Klein
    Wine: 2014 Selene Wines Frediani Vineyard
    "Food & Wine Magazine called Mia Klein “one of the most sought-after winemaking consultants in America,” and crowned her “Winemaker of the Year.” Spottswoode, Araujo, Viader, and Dalla Valle have all sought her guidance, knowing her touch leads to bottled excellence and high scores, including a perfect 100 from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Equipped with a palate that Viader owner Delia Viader called “deadly accurate,” Klein’s mastery has allowed her to fill the shoes of legends like Tony Soter and Heidi Peterson Barrett and one taste of the 2014 Selene Merlot Frediani Vineyard will tell you why. Marked by deep, pure fruit and vibrant acidity, this selection is a stunning alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon and a bottled “eureka” for Merlot cynics."
  • Winemakers: Dan Petroski, Stéphane Vivier, Jason Heller
    Wine: 2015 Band of Vintners Consortium Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley "The charge is led by 100-point Parker winemaker and San Francisco Chronicle’s 2017 Winemaker of the Year Dan Petroski of Massican and Larkmead, Aubert de Villaine-trained winemaker Stéphane Vivier of Hyde de Villaine, and Master Sommelier and Harlan alumnus Jason Heller. In addition to off-the-charts skill and palates, the Band of Vintners has deep and sturdy Napa ties, which they used to score fruit from a historic vineyard whose wines regularly fetch $125 per bottle in an average vintage."
  • Winemakers: Bruno Prats, Paul Pontallier, Felipe de Solminihac
    Wine: 2014 Vina Aquitania Lazuli Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley
    "Lazuli Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine lover’s dream come true. Bordeaux superstars Bruno Prats of Cos d’Estournel and the late Paul Pontallier of Château Margaux teamed up with Chile’s preeminent winemaker, Felipe de Solminihac, to bring French magnificence to the Maipo Valley’s incredible terroir. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate awarded the 2014 Lazuli 94 points, calling it “especially elegant,” with “very good freshness” and “super refined tannins.” As Parker’s Advocate concluded, “This certainly over delivers for the price.”"

Gift Details

Iconic Napa names like Robert Mondavi, Opus One, and Screaming Eagle are producers of some of the world’s most popular fine wines. Their wines are often highly allocated, some earning perfect 100-point scores from some of the industry’s toughest critics. Behind each label is an artisan — a winemaker who crafts the truly extraordinary. These winemakers are so passionate for their craft that they often launch their own brands — seeking to push the envelope and pursue new challenges. Industry insiders know them, and so do Michelin-star restaurants. And now, so do you. Wine Access has curated this set to showcase some of the world’s best winemakers producing extraordinary wine, priced for people to be able to appreciate.

Wine Gift Review: Caymus Conundrum Gift Basket

Caymus Conundrum Duet Gift Basket Gift Review

$150.00 at Wine Country Gift Baskets

We work hard to choose gift baskets where the wine inside is good enough to give to any wine lover, even those who are very knowledgable about wine. This gift basket fits that requirement as the Caymus Conundrum wines are very good and very popular. Both wines are a touch on the sweeter side, more obvious in the white blend than the red blend, but are also well-balanced and food-friendly.

While we can't vouch for the snacks and other goodies included, it's hard to imagine anyone being anything but grateful you took the time send such a lovely wine gift.

Wine Gift Review: Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Collection

Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Gift Basket Gift Review

$150.00 at Wine Country Gift Baskets

When it comes to wine gift baskets, it's sometimes hard to find one that feels like it's the right price for what you're giving. They often feel heavily marked up given the non-wine contents, and often the wines seem substandard. This wine basket does not follow that trend.

First, it's hard to argue that a wine basket with four bottles in it will be received as impressive. Second, the Kendall Jackson wines in this basket are not their "regular" wines, its their elevated line which wine drinkers may not be familiar with. Third, it's also chock full of delicious goodies to pair with the wine, or enjoy on their own.

Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Gift Review

$130.00 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, Coppola. The Diamond Collection line was designed to be easy-to-recognize and consistent — like an upscale Yellow Tail.

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

They can also send gifts to military APO/FPO, but sadly, alcohol cannot be shipped via military postal service.

Wine Gift Review: Stella Rosa Gift

Stella Rosa Pair Gift Review

$48.00 at Wine of the Month Club ®

Sweet wine isn't for everyone, but it's the wine of choice for so many wine drinkers, especially women (believe it or not, there is some data to support this claim is biological and not just a stereotype).

This intriguing combination of Stella Rosa Moscato and a slightly sweet, slightly bubbly red (just dances on your tongue, it's not really fizzy) makes a wonderful and affordable wine gift for your favorite sweet wine lover.

Gift Details

Packaged in a fun gift box, this gift includes one bottle of Stella Rosa Moscato d'Asti and one bottle of Stella Rosa's red wine Stella Rosso

Shipping is free
