Mmmmm, I love the full taste of a good red wine. I always enjoy a glass of good Cabernet, but one or two glasses is it. The remainder of the wine is saved in the bottle, cork stuck back inside. The next time I pour a glass from that bottle the good, rich, velvety flavor is compromised. On a recent visit home our oldest son was surprised I didn’t have a ‘wine saver’ as I call it. Wine saver? Sure enough the kitchen store had several on hand. From cheap to expensive, they all work the same. You simply stick the wine saver into your opened bottle, pump it a few times to remove the air in the bottle, and your wine is saved for next time. The flavor difference in using it or not using it is huge. It works equally well for red or white wine. How did I ever get along without this handy little tool! Well worth the $4.00 I spent.
