Riedel Cabernet Decanter (P/N 1440/13). Decanting young wine several hours before they are served allows the wine to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging. Made from lead-free crystal.

The decanter is compatible with the large stopper ball #8344.
Decanting old wines just a few moments before they are served helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by deposits and sediment.
  • Enhances the enjoyment of wine with drama and flair
  • Ensures old wines' clarity and brilliance
  • Allows young wines to bloom and develop
  • Mouth-blown from lead-free crystal

CALIFORNIA PROP 65 WARNING.
Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead—a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

How does the quality of Riedel's new lead-free crystal compare to its 24% lead crystal glass?
Riedel recently began the process of converting all of its glassware from lead to lead-free glass crystal, and eventually all of Riedel's glassware will be lead-free. We compared lead vs the lead-free (Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru glasses side by side, and found it difficult to distinguish between the glasses. It seemed like the lead-free glasses had thinner stems and rims, while the 24% lead glasses seemed slightly heaver in the hand. There was no discernable difference in the balance, clarity or construction of the glasses.

Nice decanter

by

After a recent trip to Napa, we decided to invest in a decanter. Since we had not owned and used one before we decided to limit what we spent on what was to be our first step.
Consequently we decided on this model from Riedel since a good bit of the wine we are serving to family and friends are cabernets, though certainly not exclusively cabs and it is more moderately priced than many on the market.
One of the first wines we poured was an modestly aged wine we found in Southern California. When I first opened it, it did not smell like the wine we had enjoyed a few years ago when we visited the winery. After more than an hour in the decanter it was back to life.
Without decanting, this bottle would have been poured down the drain. Very glad we bought this decanter.

Love this decanter

by

Decanting wine is so important to the overall experience and I love this decanter. It's small but does the job. It is simple in design but easy to clean!

Great for young wines

by

I frequent the wineries in the Shenandoah valley, and usually end up with several young bottles that I uncork before their time. Since I started using this decanter, I really notice the difference. Highly recommended if you suffer from impatience like me!

Beautiful yet simple.

This was a great purchase. Pretty much the only decanter that we use in our house. It has withstood many many uses and still looks great. Highly recommended.

Lovely Decanter

We use this decanter in our tasting room for one of our Cabernet Sauvignons. It's beautiful and clearly a quality product, very easy to handle and does an wonderful job decanting.
