I did not know that this glass existed until August 2009 when my husband and I vacationed on the Oregon Coast. We stopped at Ponzi Wine Bar for a wine tasting and they provided these glasses to taste Oregon pinot noirs in. I already own the Vinum Extreme series for most wine types including pinot noirs but I just loved holding and drinking from this glass. It is a thinner glass but seems sturdy enough and the shape really brings out the best in the wine.

The general aesthetic is pleasing, as you would expect. My only complaint is that the stem seems to be slightly off center from the bowl. Maybe they did this to keep the glass from rolling off a table when on its side? One of the bases also has a small flake of glass missing-- again, minor and cosmetic. This suggests that Riedel's quality control isn't as high as I had expected.

    Comments about Riedel Vinum XL Pinot Noir (Set of 2):

    We love these glasses - have about a dozen now. They are fantastic for entertaining- guests are really wowed by the tulip shape. We have gotten to the point where we use them for most all of the wines we drink, red, white, pinot, cab... whatever- they just feel good to hold and drink from.

    Comments about Riedel Vinum XL Pinot Noir (Set of 2):

    Beautiful glass. I was amazed at how it brings out characteristics of a pinot noir that can be missed with a "regular" wine glass. Large bowl, so storage may be an issue and definitely requires care when cleaning. Worth the effort, a little on the pricey side, but would buy this glass again. Its my go to glass when I have my friends over for a pinot noir tasting.

      Comments about Riedel Vinum XL Pinot Noir (Set of 2):

      I love the Riedel Vinum series of stemware. They are delicate and elegant, but good enough for everyday use!

      These definitely enhance the flavors of Pinot Noir.

      The biggest drawback is that I did not expect them to be so large, even with the XL label on them. They are extremely big.

      Comments about Riedel Vinum XL Pinot Noir (Set of 2):

      Vinum XL Pinot is beautiful, elegant and directs the wine for optimum taste bud sensation with Pinot Noir wines. It seems to outperform the Vinum Extreme in this area. The small rim makes it difficult to clean but the style reminiscent of the Sommelier line makes it worth the extra trouble.

      Beautifully designed Riedel glasses. With a California Pinot Noir, I preferred this glass over the Riedel Extreme. The Riedel XL shape seemed to make the wine taste better and drink easier. Riedel glasses are fun to collect, modern but always tasteful and never dated. Try em and love em. Just be focused when washing them and putting them away.

      The bowl of the glass is too narrow. I wish I had ordered the Oregon Pinot Noir glasses. Love my chardonnay vinum extreme and thought I would like the Pinot extreme. My least favorite Riedel glass and I have several styles.
