In my endless quest to pick up the perfect stocking stuff, I impulse bought a Vinturi Wine Aerator (see http://www.vinturi.com/home.html) for my wife. With the latest familial addition, and his ridiculous sleep schedule, we find little time to enjoy leisure nights of wine tasting with two hour decantings and I'm hoping that even in some small way, this device will help "enhance the experience" when we have only an hour to enjoy a bottle here and there.
I'm wondering whether I will totally regret the purchase ... or only partially. Any experience one way or the other with similar devices ? The theory seems right to me, but I'm not sure how much real world effect it will have.
Regardless of how it works, I think I'll drink that 97' Jos. Phelps Insignia I've got downstairs the old fashioned way on NYE.
