Gift Idea for Grads

CB_Cum_LaudeCongratulations to all the recent and upcoming graduates!

If you’re thinking through a gift to recognize the college, business school, med school, law school, master’s program, or PhD graduate in your life, Cum Laude Super Tuscan makes a fitting choice. The blend of 30% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, and 15% Syrah has a full bouquet with aromas of blackberries and plums, complemented by licorice, black olives, and pipe-tobacco notes. It’s a special wine with each grape individually vinified and aged for 6-8 months in French oak barriques before the cuvée is aged for an additional 6-8 months. At least 6 months of bottle-rest follows. It’s unfiltered to preserve its unique character. Perfect with aged cheeses, grilled meats, and celebratory graduation dinners.

SRP: $40
