Sip in style with this Riedel Vinum Bordeaux Cabernet glass set. Introduced in 1986, Vinum became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal. Designed in tasting work shops based on the performance where the content commands the shape, each Vinum glass is made from machine-blown leaded crystal and shaped for each type of wine or beverage. This set is perfect for young, full-bodied (more than 12 percent alcohol), complex red wines that are high in tannin, this glass smooths out the rough edges, emphasizing the fruit and allowing wines to achieve a balance that would normally take years of aging to acquire. The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully while the shape directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the bitter qualities of the tannin. With its specially designed shape to enhance the flavor, this beautiful Cabernet/Merlot glass set is the perfect way to enjoy Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Franc, Rioja, Tempranillo, and other wines.
