I actually tried this on a whim. As someone who is trying to get more into wine tasting, I've been easily off put by strongly offensive wines. After purchasing this, I used it to try a wine I previously didn't enjoy and it really did make it taste amazing. The aerator is beautifully designed and I've already received compliments on it. I like how I can bring it with me to parties and events and break it out for easy use. It really adds a touch of class to the experience.
