Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot (Bordeaux)

Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot (Bordeaux)

Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot. Perfect for young, full-bodied (more than 12 percent alcohol), complex red wines that are high in tannin.

This glass smoothes out the rough edges, emphasizing the fruit, allowing wines to achieve a balance that would normally take years of aging to acquire.
The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully. The shape directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the bitter qualities of the tannin.

Fine Crystal, Machine-Made. All Riedel glasses are dishwasher proof.

Ideal for following grapes:

Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fronsac, Graves rouge, Listrac, Margaux, Médoc, Merlot, Moulis, Pauillac, Pessac Leognan (Rouge), Pomerol, St. Emilion, St. Estèphe, St. Julien

What is difference between vinum xl cabernet and hearts Cabernet glasses?

Asked by: Dgasil
Ican't tell you about the Heart Cab Glass but I know as a winemaker and tasting room operator that the xl is a perfect glass for more than just Cabernet. It is a great glass for aromatics and opening the wine of choice for tasting the wines flavors.

The Vinum can/Merlot looks awfully similar to the Shiraz/syrah...are they different enough to make a difference, i.e. if I were to pit a Malbec in the cab/Merlot glass??

Asked by: Katie S
Dear Katie, These two shapes are quite similar in appearance, but different enough that the functionality is different. The Shiraz/Syrah glass narrows a bit towards the top and extends into a taller bowl which helps to highlight the tannins, offering a perfect balance with the overwhelmingly concentrated fruit. The shape of the Cabernet/Merlot glass directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the bitter qualities of the tannin.

Hi, Ordering a few hundred of these- I have a vendor who's building me a stemware hanger, what is the base diameter of these glasses? Thanks!

Asked by: Matt
Its about 3". Take a look at Lowes. I bought hangers through them they work perfectly fine. The stems are basic size as far as your needs are.

I am trying to match some Riedel red wine glasses I own. The size we have is perfect. They stand 9 inches tall, are 3 inces across the top rim and the stems are about 4 inches or so from the base.Can you identify from this description so I can order more.

Asked by: Anthony
Judging from the size, I'd say it's probably of the Vinum XL variety. I just measured my standard Vinum Cab/Merlot glasses and they're about an inch shorter with a shorter stem. Sorry I can't be more help. Maybe someone with the XL glasses could help? Good luck
