I've been looking for a decanter for some time now but really have been looking with not as much vigor as one who loves wine should, then a couple weekends ago I was at a friend's who had a very lovely decanter and so now with a new found interest in decanters, I am looking once again!
For those of you who don't know the function of the decanter, the decanter also used to pour wine from has the main objective of it's existence to allow the wine to breath, the shape of the decanter is thus important and usually consists of a larger bottom base vessel with a funnel neck allowing air to enter and... decant the wine, this should invariably allow the full flavors of the wine to be enjoyed.
There are, like everything else in this world, a large selection of decanters. Look for decanters with the type of wine you'll be pouring in mind, white wine decanters and red wine decanters are shaped differently for the ultimate decanting experience for each.
