Wine as a gift- interesting question

annab | Jun 3, 2002 10:33 AM

I asked in the thread below about a good bottle of wine for a gift, and received some wonderful recommendations, which I intend to follow. But it raised an interesting question. When buying wine as a gift, especially when planning to spend a good bit of money, is it a better idea to buy a wine that needs some age for keeping- a special gift that represents something of real value- or a wine for consuming immediately- a gift that brings pleasure immediately, not deferred.

Any thoughts?
