The Cabernet/Merlot glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin. The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully, and smooths out the rough edges. It emphasizes the fruit, playing down the bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance. The optic impact in the RIEDEL Performance series adds both a design feature and an astounding effect on wine's aromatics.
RIEDEL Performance is the first wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic impact for better aromatics. Co-designed by both Georg and Maximilian Riedel, RIEDEL Performance is a technologically advanced and user-friendly collection of grape varietal specific glasses.
Premium machine-made and dishwasher safe.
“PREMIUM” defines the advantage of a machine blown RIEDEL glass vs. A hand-made glass. The difference lies within the precision.
Since RIEDEL glasses are fine-tuned instruments that support your wine enjoyment, we must make sure that there are no variances in the execution of the bowl and rim diameter, which is the key to our philosophy!
