A good wine to give as a gift is the 2010 pinot noir from Nobilo Marlborough Icon, according to Forbes magazine's 2013 wine and spirits gift guide. The New Zealand wine placed in Wine Spectator magazine's top 100 for 2012.
The 2013 vintage of this label is also a top choice, according to Forbes. The gift guide notes that individuals who prefer a white wine enjoy the Kim Crawford sauvignon blanc, also from New Zealand. The 2012 vintage of that wine scored 91 points from Wine Spectator. The 2013 retail price of both wines was about $20, according to Forbes.
