Riedel's premier collection, the Sommeliers line, includes an impressive assortment of lead-crystal glasses, each developed by expert tasters to flatter a specific type of fine wine or liquor. This glass was designed for the great red wines of Bordeaux, including those made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. The generous bowl provides breathing space and allows the aromas to unfold. The rim is precisely shaped to deliver the wine toward the front of the palette, which allows you to experience the well-balanced blend of acidity and supple tannins. The glass' shape also enhances your appreciation of the wine's silky texture and prolonged finish. Artisans at the company's family-owned factory in Austria craft this exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. We recommend washing by hand. 30.4-oz. cap., 10 3/4" high.
