I always wondered whether or not wine actually tastes better in finer glassware and now I know. This is like an entire different universe. I am tasting some of my favorite wines as if for the first time, with many added dimensions.
I love the sheer size as well as the shape of these glasses. They are delicate----but not too much so. Highly recommended

      I first came across this glass in Napa and decided not to purchase any because of the price. When I found them at Wine Enthusiast for a reasonable price I had to have them.

      Comments about Riedel Vinum Extreme Cabernet/Merlot/Bordeaux Wine Glasses (Set of 2):

      We purchased two of these just to see what they were like and now end up using them almost all the time. They are well balanced and don't seem awkward. Even though they are significantly larger than normal large format glasses, they don't seem oversize or difficult to handle. In fact, they almost seem a bit more intimate in terms of our interaction with the wine. They fit well in our dishwasher and have survived quite a fews washings so far, although we have learned to be careful with Riedels. They are beautiful, but delicate!

      There is only one drawback...but not big enough to not use these glasses....that is they do not go in the dishwasher.

        Full bodied red wines are perfect for this glass and it allows you to fully enjoy the wine Bouquet after swirling the wine before smelling and then sipping.

          This was a replacement order for wine glasses. Excellent product that is well received by the novice as well as the sommelier!
          Would highly recommend!

          Comments about Riedel Vinum Extreme Cabernet/Merlot/Bordeaux Wine Glasses (Set of 2):

          I was given two of these wine glasses as a gift in 2009, and did not use them for a couple years. Last year after using them for the first time, I was hooked. I searched for a source to get additional glasses (6 - 10 more), and then stored my old wine glasses. They do have to be handled with care, but the light weight, balance, and unique attractiveness is worth it! Highly recommended by a cab lover.

            Comments about Riedel Vinum Extreme Cabernet/Merlot/Bordeaux Wine Glasses (Set of 2):

            I love this glass. It makes drinking big California cabernets that much better. The angular design focuses the wine to accentuate it. Only bad thing is after about a year, they develop marks in the glass (not watermarks), not sure if it's the lead in the glass or not.
