Pretty but doesn't pour well....
on December 19, 2014
Unfortunately, I will have to replace this decanter. We use decanters all the time for almost every bottle we open. This one is pretty by appearance but the rim form is not suitable for pouring wine. What you can't see in the picture is how thick the top rim is - almost 1/4 inch. This affects the wine pour & makes wine dribble all over the edge & sides of the decanter. It needs a very thin rim to pour neatly. High quality wine glasses are the same. If you tried to drink from one with 1/4 inch rim, you'd have it all over the outside of the glass with each sip! Also, there is no punt at the bottom, which makes the decanter not as easy to handle as one that has one. The price was good, and will keep it for the look of it. But if you use decanters often, you make prefer a different brand with better design.
