Purchased some Riedel crystal as my first set of true wine glasses and once again to quote a famous film "If you have the means I highly suggest".

I was skeptical that crystal could make a difference in the flavor and approach of the wine yet I found myself amazed when I tried my first sip of Raven's Glen out of it. The closest I can compare is the difference between root beer out of a can or a glass bottle, there is just something more crisp and smooth about it. I'm slowly building out my kitchen collection and replacing some of the lower quality items with ones such as this and what a fantastic step it's been.

Here is a link to the Riedel page, they make some fantastic products and it's interesting to learn about their company's history and purpose.
