The Wine Connoisseur Gift Basket
Spread Good Tidings a most generous way with this amazing wine gift basket overflowing the comfort and joy of California’s finest red and white wines paired with a gourmet selection of sweet and savory snacks. The showstopper of the basket is a Robert Mondavi 2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon [96 Points: Wine Spectator], with chewy, mouth-coating tannins that merge with flavors of blackberry, black plum and hint of black olive, giving it uncommon complexity and depth. It’s joined by a supple and fragrant Chateau Montelena 2009 Estate Zinfandel [91 Points: The Wine Advocate], that is juicy, ripe and sweet with good length and a hint of herbs on the finish. There’s the Pahlmeyer 2009 Napa Chardonnay [95 Points: The Wine Advocate], a complex chardonnay that’s spicy with toasty notes that are balanced by bright acidity and an intense, mouthwatering, long finish. The foursome is completed by Far Niente 2010 Estate Chardonnay [92 Points: The Wine Spectator], which offers aromas of Meyer lemon, toasted nuts and fig that are supported by the underlying sweetness of honeysuckle. A rich, full midpalate with balanced acidity draws out into a long finish. The entire festive feast of gourmet wines and delicacies are arranged in spectacular fashion within an antiqued metal basket featuring ornamental trim. They’ll cheer your excellent taste while they enjoy celebrating the season one delicious sip at a time.
