Riedel, Extreme Cabernet, BOX OF 2

$39.00

The Cabernet 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 emphasises the fruit, playing down the bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance. Perfect for these grapes:

Brunello di Montalcino, Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Emilion, Listrac, Moulis, Margaux, Cabernet Franc, Fronsac, Petit Verdot, Montepulciano, Merlot, Medoc, Graves rouge, Pauillac, St. Julien, Pomerol, Pessac Leognan (Rouge).

The EXTREME glasses derive their name from their extreme contours. The bowls are reminiscent of polished diamonds that spread out wide and taper off at the top. This allows the wine plenty of room to breathe, enhancing and emphasizing the pleasant softness and generally fruity notes of the New World wines.

About the Merchant

Riedel | Kufstein, Austria | Est. 1756

Ninth Generation family member Claus J. Riedel revolutionized glassware, designing the first-ever “Sommelier” stemware collection with each glass crafted uniquely to the character of each wine. Family-owned in Austria since the 17th century, these hand-crafted Austrian crystal glasses are varietal-specific, meaning there is a specific glass for each wine region, designed + dedicated enhance the taste of that wine to its fullest potential. Insufficiently-sized glasses will cause various wines to have faults that they otherwise wouldn’t have, such as overly mineral, bitter, or harsh characteristics. Tastings at Logan Mercantile are encouraged – see for yourself the difference a quality, customized glass design makes.
