The Ravenscroft Amplifier glasses are unmatched in their ability to magnify the bouquet of any wine, focusing and intensifying the bouquet. If the bouquet is world class, the experience will be breathtakingly intense. But if a wine contains flaws such as excessive alcohol, Brettanomyces, or oxidation, they will be presented as such without pity. However, be warned: drinking from Ravenscroft Amplifiers is a learned skill. Nevertheless, like mastering any powerful tool, the reward far outweighs any necessary effort. Be patient with the Amplifier glasses and just remember that not drinking your best wines in an Amplifier is simply a shame.
