2012 wines - your best picks to hold for 5, 10+ years

The traditional fourth anniversary gift is fruit/flowers, and my idea this year is to give my husband some great wines (it counts as fruit!)

We got married in 2012, so I'm looking to buy bottles from 2012 vintage that we can open this year and at our 5th, 10th, 15th, and even 20th anniversaries if I can find any that will do well aging that long. Any suggestions?

He doesn't drink sweet wine but could make an exception. Otherwise anything goes! We are not wine experts but do appreciate nice wine. No particular budget, but since I want to buy at least 3-4 bottles, I really want to limit the number of $200 bottles I get! I hear 2012 was a great year in general and particularly for California cabs but not Bordeaux. That's all I really know!

Please let me know if you have any particular wines to recommend, and for which anniversary I should assign them!
