Gourmet Wine Gift Baskets

Another heady gift basket that can bring smiles is the gourmet wine gift basket. A sure-fire hit with boss, family, friends or business associates, they toast any occasion with ?lan and encourage the art of hedonistic living! Weddings, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year?s, housewarming or birthday, get-well-soon wishes ? all are appropriate occasions for these generous gift baskets.

Elegant gourmet wine baskets offer interesting wines with a snack or food combination that heightens dining pleasure. You can select your own match or pick a ready-made basket according to your budget or preference, and the occasion. Usually, light wines work with easy snacks and heavy wines for heavy food. Highly spiced foods restrict your choices, as the alcohol in the wine can clash with the spices on your palate. It?s all about trusting your taste buds while experimenting, as well as looking at the region?s favorite combinations.

These baskets usually cater to universal tastes, with red, white or dessert wine or champagne accompanying crackers, cookies and chocolates. Interesting packages can also be created with assorted nuts, tortillas, chips, pretzels, smoked salmon, gourmet sausages, cheese, jelly, savory breads and dips. Other medleys include sauces, purees, extracts, syrups and spreads, exotic coffee or tea, oil and vinegars, herbs and spices, ethnic food ranging from Indian and Japanese to Spanish and Italian, or desserts and sweets.

Ready-made meals with that perfect wine can be presented as a surprise gourmet wine gift offering. Soups, salads, grilled or cooked meats, casseroles, fondues, pies, pastas, desserts and an accompanying wine or two can instantly lighten up an evening. So a Chicken Picata with Chardonnay or Kung Pao chicken with a cool Gewurztraminer, chocolates with port or apricot custard with Sauternes can bedazzle your friends like never before!

The baskets can be elaborately decorated with ribbons and satin trimmings. They can even include hand-painted glasses, wineglass charms, hand-carved wine art, wine ceramics or other wine accessories to give it that exclusive touch. Delectable, divine or plain sensational, you can never go wrong with a gourmet wine basket unless it is bequeathed to someone who abstains from alcohol or whose religion forbids it. Check your foreign business contacts? cultural background before presenting something that should ideally cheer and uplift.

Light up the candles; lay out the charm, soft music and gourmet wine basket magic ? that taste of wine offers a taste of Heaven!

Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon

"... That being said, Mondavi's 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is an exquisite wine, as well as a Cabernet that may turn out to be one of the wines of the vintage. The deep opaque purple color, and tightly wound nose and flavors still reveal enough profound aromas and flavors to mark this as one of Mondavi's most sensational efforts. The nose possesses a Margaux/Mouton-like cassis, lead pencil, floral aroma, backed up by copious quantities of blackcurrant fruit. In the mouth, my notes said, "great stuff." The wine is full-bodied, layered, multi-dimensional, and astonishingly well-balanced, with an inner-depth and core of exceptional richness and intensity. All of this has been accomplished without any notion of obtrusive weight, tannin, or alcohol. The finish lasts for 35+ seconds.Because of its luxurious quantity of fruit, this wine will be accesible young, thus much of it will be drunk long before it ever reaches full maturity. However, for those able to buy more than a bottle ot two, and who possesses the discipline to wait 10-15years, this wine should prove to be a formidable California Cabernet with a rare complexity, elegance, and richness. It should be at its best between 2002-2025..." RP - 98 (Subject to Availability) RMCR94 RMCR94
