This Riedel Vinum Bordeaux stemware set with bonus "O" Viognier tumblers is an amazing value at 8 glasses for the price of 4. The four Vinum glasses in this set of eight were specifically shaped to highlight the fruit in full-bodied red wines with high levels of tannin, such as Bordeaux, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, and Tempranillo. The design of the Bordeaux bowl directs the wine to the area of the palate that perceives sweetness, emphasizing the fruit and mellowing the acidity or any rough edges, while the large bowls provide room for the wine's rich bouquet to unfold. Made of lead crystal, the Vinum glasses are Riedel's most popular series and were the first machine-made wine glasses to be developed uniquely for each type of wine. The trendy and sophisticated "O" tumblers included as a bonus in this set will perform much like Riedel's preceding wineglass creations, but will also fit easily into the dishwasher or cupboard without the worries of breaking the stem. For those who would like to experience the concept of matching the shape of the glass to the grape without the traditional stemmed glass.
