The latest incarnation of the best-selling Wine Breather, this hand-blown glass decanter by Norm.Architects for Menu now comes with a gleaming brass cap.
Like the original, this version aerates wine with the flip of the bottle. Position it mouth-to-mouth with an open wine bottle. Flip it over so the red liquid pours into the decanter. Wine aeration is cut to two minutes, and with 10 times the oxygen than wine left in a bottle, the difference is in the taste. Serve from the decanter or reverse the flow and pour the aerated vino back into the bottle and serve from there. Inversion washes down the sides of the decanter, further aerating it. Ideal for young wines under three years. Or use it as a conventional decanter for vintages six years or older that contain sediment.
