Wine decanters are an absolute necessity for red wines in order to properly aerate the wine and bring out the best aroma and flavor. Of course a quality decanter can not only make your wine reach is fullest potential it can also provide a excellent serving vessel for a bottle of wine you have purchased for a special occasion.
Decanting is especially important for red wines to help remove the sediment that may be in the bottle especially after it has been properly aged. For this purpose there are all sorts of shapes and designs for a wine decanter. Most often a wine decanter is tall and has a large opening. This surface area of both glass and available air will allow the wine to oxygenate for a full flavor that is just not possible if you allow the wine to breath in a bottle or glass.

This wine decanter is a gorgeous crystal vessel that will look elegant on a table or bar as you host a wine party or just spend an evening with that someone special.
