An easy and inexpensive way to improve your wine! Plus you can't beat the price in our 1 Day Insider Deal.
If you've followed Reverse Wine Snob for any length of time you know that we will often comment on how much better a wine tastes or smells after it "has some air" or "time to breathe".
The simple reasons for that are oxidation and evaporation. As wine takes up oxygen, often times further aromas and tastes are unleashed. In addition some of the less desirable aromas from alcohol and sulfur-based compounds more quickly dissipate.
And while you could simply open a bottle up and let it sit for several hours before you drink it, that takes a lot of planning. A decanter speeds up this process by exposing much more of the wine to air.
So today we thought we'd take a break from our normal Insider Deals on wine and instead feature a decanter perfect for Reverse Wine Snobs!
From our point of view, there are two primary things to look for in a decanter and the one we are offering here fits them both:
- First, is a design (such as a wide base) that allows as much of the wine as possible to come in contact with air.
- The second is that it looks nice as decanters also make a great display piece and can really class up your table.
Decanters also have the added benefit of helping to filter sediment out of the wine but that's not a major concern for most wines under $20.
If you've ever shopped for decanter before you now they can be very expensive. Even the basic designs from Riedel can go for hundreds of dollars!
In typical Reverse Wine Snob style we've selected one today that not only does the job very capably but will also look quite nice on your table for just $14.99 plus only $5 in shipping! And unlike our wine deals, there are no state restrictions on this one except for Hawaii and Alaska.
This is a limited time offer facilitated by our friends at Wine Country Connect. Sale ends Friday 6/19 at noon (PST) unless it sells out sooner.

From the manufacturer:
The beautiful, soft flowing lines of this Classique Decanter lend themselves to effortless pours. This decanter features a wide base that greatly increases surface area, and reduces decanting time while helping to eliminate sediment from the wine.
