Valentine’s Day gifts such as sweet confections, a dozen roses or a sumptuous dinner are intended to delight one’s sense of taste and smell.
This holiday, the multi-sensory gift possibilities include a new type of wineglass designed to heighten the flavor of wine. So whether it’s a cabernet you’re having with those chocolates or a sauterne with your cupcakes, here’s a fine way to make the most of any wine.
The Silhouette wineglass has a notched rim – cut into the top side of the glass – which allows the bowl of the glass to wrap around the nose, providing a deeper appreciation of the wine’s bouquet. The notch also allows a generous flow of air into the glass, prompting the release of a wine’s characteristic aromas.
Since up to 90-percent of taste comes through smell, the innovative design allows the drinker to capture more of a wine’s true essence, enhancing the tasting experience. The 20-ounce bowl allows proper swirling which also aids in breaking open the wine’s aromas.
The glass is 24-percent lead crystal hand-crafted in The Czech Republic, a world center for high quality glassmaking. It’s a fine gift and a great experience – perfect for Valentine’s Day.
The Silhouette glass is $54 and available online at www.greatestwineglass.com. Tomzi International, Ltd. is the only manufacturer of Silhouette.
