Let your wine breathe,
This review is from: Sagaform 0001095 Wine Carafe with Oak Stopper (Kitchen & Home)
I got one of these for my birthday this year and I have to say I'm won over. It (probably) fits two full bottles of wine, which makes it particularly useful for dinner parties and any leftover wine can be easily kept until needed.
I feel a lot of cheapish wines taste better when they are allowed to breathe/rest for 24 hours before drinking, and this is something made easy with this decanter. The oak stopper is a nice feature that many decanters/carafes don't have. I was initially concerned about the wood being stained by the wine but I certainly haven't noticed anything.
It is well-balanced and feels very stable and easy to pour. Very few drips of wine run down the outside after pouring, never enough to reach the table.
It can be a bit tricky to clean (not dishwasher friendly; can't fit my hand inside) but when washing out with warm water and soap, there there is never any residue/wine left inside.
