April and May birthdays coming up? You may not have the extra dough laying around to splurge on a birthstone necklace or cufflinks (April’s birth stone just so happens to be diamonds), but you can always give the gift of great flavor! Delicious now, later or for years to come, Paso Robles Wines are far more thoughtful (and satisfying) than a bouquet of flowers.

Speaking of bouquets, these five party-approved bottles offer up a sumptuous experience from first swirl to last sip. Go on, get ’em what they really want. Just don’t try to pair them with any old birthday cake.

The collector

Aging is a very good thing: A leather wallet, a great pair of boots, smile lines—some things just get better with age. The same goes for Paso Robles wines—many of which can age up to 10+ years with delicious results. Got a wine collector on your hands? Look for a structured red noted for its age-ability and heft. We like Dover Canyon Winery’s 2018 Saint, a rich red blend with a dry, earthy finish. Imbued with toasty oak and vanilla on the nose and showing robust flavors of boysenberry and blackberry on the palate, it may be difficult for the birthday gal or guy to keep from popping that cork. But, rest assured: if they do abstain from instant gratification, this lovely red blend will deepen into an even richer, more sumptuous experience. Here’s to waiting!

The party animal

Rosé all (birth)day: Heading to a pool party in honor of your pluckiest pal? Bring a host or hostess gift that they’ll want to stash in their crisper drawer (you know, just to make sure no one else gets any ideas). An easy, versatile wine is always preferable for the social butterfly, who equally loves to cheers over brunch or happy hour. With it’s stunning coral-rose hue, Peachy Canyon’s 2020 Rosé is as gorgeous as it is juicy. Think watermelon and wild strawberries met with ribbons of guava and ruby red grapefruit. Wrap it all up with a long creamy finish (and perhaps a new pool float). Now they’re ready to celebrate any time of day. Rosé? OK!

The hipster

Impress your friends: What to get for the wine guy or gal who must always drink off the beaten path? We have the answer: Get them a bottle that looks as fabulous as it tastes! Wait—make that three bottles. Tooth and Nail’s Experience Red Bundle features a trio of enthralling red wines emblazoned with gorgeous labels that simply scream “display me on your countertop!” This special selection is only available via the winery’s website, giving the gift an ultra exclusive vibe. This tasty set—which includes The Possessor red blend, Statis pinot noir and Amor Fati syrah—is sure to leave a lasting impression. Plus, you’ll look cool for giving it!

The explorer

They love to do, see, taste, and experience: Book your most adventurous friend an immersive tasting at SixMileBridge, known for crafting dazzling estate grown cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux-style blends. At the winery, your pal will taste through world class wines sourced from organically farmed, limestone-rich Paso Robles vineyards. The best part? The birthday guy or gal can purchase incredible small lot bottles during their visit (and something tells us they’d prefer to choose their own adventure). Just think of the memories they’ll collect from a day wine tasting! A good bottle may not last past dinner, but those will certainly last a lifetime.

The chef

A five star dining experience at home: Forget those corny kitchen gadgets—we have just the thing to urge your favorite DIY chef to try a brand new recipe. That’s right: Get the birthday guy or gal an approachable-yet-sophisticated wine that cries out for food (and quite possibly inspires an entire menu to be built around it)! Halibut, beet salad, lemon roasted chicken, creamy herbed goat cheese garlic crisps, Thai ginger lemongrass noodles…all of these delicious bites are suggested pairings for Copia Vineyards 2018 White, a fresh Rhone-style blend overflowing with balanced pear, honeysuckle, and white peach allure. Yes, it’s simply delectable to the last drop. This time the cook might just kiss you!
