Riedel Vinum Wine Glasses make every drop of wine taste its best. Riedel revolutionized glassware by customizing the shape of wine glasses to a particular type of wine. Each wine glass is fine-tuned to direct the flow of the wine onto parts of the palate that will best express the flavors and aromas of a specific wine varietal. The fine crystal offers superb clarity so you can experience the wine's color and texture. Moreover all machine made Vinum stems are completely dishwasher safe. Made of over 24% leaded crystal. The Riedel Vinum Cabernet / Merlot / Bordeaux wine glass is ideal for full-bodied complex red wines that are high in alcohol and tannins. The generous size allows the wine to aerate in the glass and the bouquet to develop fully. The shape of the rim directs the flow of the wine to the front palate to enhance sweetness thus accentuating the fruit while softening bitter tannins. Also available personalized.
