Give it a shake!
My wife and I attended a wine glass comparison event by George, the tenth generation Reidel from Austria when we were visiting Austin Texas. It was quite eye opening.

In any event the spotlight turned to decanters. George explained that decanter makes a difference as it releases the preservatives and CO2 thus opening up the young wine more(in older wines this would have occurred over a longer span through cork-outside air exchange). He said once you pour it into the decanter, give it a shake for 10-12 seconds. Then he put the mike at the mouth of the decanter, and the volume from the above process was clearly audible. You'd never think this is what's going on!

This decanter is perfect for that purpose. Give it a shake, maybe two 10 second shakes in 2 minutes, and you'll be ready to pour out and reuse.

I am glad Reidel has come out with a lower priced item in this economy. It's a double win as you can buy younger (read cheaper) reds and enjoy them.

Riedel Quality
Good decanter if looking for a relatively small one - holds one bottle perfectly.
Two of these work great at a large dinner table.

Oh, yeah.........
This is a sleek, stylish little decanter. We are learning about ways the breathe wines, and I think if we pour with the aerator and use the decanter to 'stand and breathe' we can certainly release even more of the flavors. I'm posting the size as a "con" -- if you are serving a large party you'll be refilling and standing this; but for a few friends it will be perfect.

Very small decanter
This decanter is very small, but you get what you pay for... Also has a very small surface area, doesn't really do the trick on fuller bodied merlots. But it is a nice way to serve the wine

Lovely Decanter
We use this strictly for red wine and use an aerator when the wine is poured into the decanter.

Nice piece of glass
A nice half bottle decanter, perfect for two glasses of wine. The glass is thin and has a feel of quality. A big step up from the old "milk bottle" glass decanter that it replaced.

Nice decanter
A useable decanter that pours well and looks elegant.
It is OK for 1 bottle of red wine, but for a large party you will need several of these.
