Surprisingly, 90% of people can't taste the difference between red and white wine when blindfolded. If you or your man is part of that 10%, it's time to get a proper tasting glass to develop those skills. Or, just for fun.
This is the tulip-shaped stemware sought exclusively by top vintners for tasting prospective wines. Once displayed in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the glass has a curved, diamond-cut notch in the rim that allows one to more effectively inhale a wine’s full bouquet, this cleverly designed glass concentrates the aromas of wine and guides them to the nose—which discerns 10,000 flavors versus the tongue’s four—allowing the sense of smell to more easily detect the scents of fruits, flowers, and spices that compose the true flavor. With a 16-ounce capacity below the notch, this glass still provides ample room to swirl and aerate wine.
