The Riedel Boa Decanter is the latest in the animal-inspired line of wine carafes. As sinuous as the Dragon version and slim like the Bird model, this design is nevertheless much more intricate due to its twisting body. Instead of slithering forward, it is slithering upwards as though poised for an attack.
Granted, the pose of the Riedel Boa Decanter makes it easier to pore while aerating the liquid so that it is even tastier and smoother going down. It has a capacity of up to 69 ounces, measures nearly 30 inches high and weighs in at a hefty nine pounds. A sculptural addition to any bar, the Riedel Boa Decanter is made for those who love snakes.
