      Description

      Experience Napa Valley with this beautiful gift of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir from Napa Cellars. These two wines pair perfectly with the accompanying sweet and savory bites.

      Wine Gift Basket Includes:
      • Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon:
        Elegant and concentrated aromas of plum and dark fruit open to a soft mouthfeel of black and red fruit flavor with a subtle hint of cinnamon. The French Oak helps soften the tannins and the understated acidity of this wine complement the bright fruit characteristics to create a balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.

      • Napa Cellars Pinot Noir:
        This Pinot Noir is an elegant wine that delivers beautiful, fruitful aromas of dark cherries, cranberries and strawberry preserves with subtle tobacco notes. Abundant flavors of amarena cherries, rhubarb pie, and hints of cola rest on thepalate followed by light toasted oak notes that carry through to the finish. This wine portrays excellent mouthfeel with soft and supple tannins and firm acid structure complete with a balanced finish.

      • Sonoma Jacks Original Cheese 4 oz
      • Beef Summer Sausage 5 oz
      • Three Pepper Water Crackers 2 oz
      • Spanish Manzanilla Olives 2 oz

      • Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies 2 oz
      • Napa Mustard 1.75 oz

      Due to the popularity of this gift, wines or vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with the current vintage and wines with equal or greater value. Pursuant to state laws in New York, gifts that contain both food and wine will be sent in two separate packages.

      Critical Acclaim

      All Vintages

      A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exist, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. Still suffering for centuries after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry did not truly begin here until the late 20th century, after a mass influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology. The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is often moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, often necessitating irrigation.

      Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include soft and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

      Other Red Blends

      View all wine

      With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
