Everything about this decanter is awesome. It's made of crystal, looks great, and decants wine perfectly. However, I wish it had a pouring lip because whenever I pour wine out of it, it drips everywhere. I have to wipe it after each pour or else it'll run down the side and onto my table or floor.
I love the shape of this decanter and everyone comments on how great it looks. I've purchase two because the first one cracked around the rim. I bought the drying rack for it where it hangs upside down which works great but don't put it near a wall or if you bump it the lip with tap the wall and it doesn't take much for it to chip. The good news is it's not very expensive so replacing it is not that difficult.
I am amazed at how much better a wine tastes when it's decanted. We've used it most with younger less expensive wines to help them have a richer, more full bodied taste. The decanter is a nice design that's easy to clean. Ours had a teeny tiny chip in the rim, but we just use it anyway. Really improves the taste of wine!
We used to own the big, wide decanter that took up an entire cupboard, but we gave it away after finding this one. It's the perfect size, beautifully made, and looks striking when filled. Best of all, it only takes up the space of a pitcher. We haven't noticed any difference in taste from the fatter models. Makes a great gift for the wine enthusiast.
I drink mainly 10-25 dollar bottles of various reds. I never thought a lot about using a decanter, but a friend swore it made it better. So I tried this for what the price of a bottle. It makes a big difference, 15-30 minutes in the decanter and it's a different wine, I recommend this.
