Reply to "The term decanting - used for sediment seperation AND aeration?"

I love the term "carafer".

No more splash decanting for me - it just sounds so common when there's a great French term we can use.

Thanks Mimik!

But when robust young wines like Zinfandel are poured off the bottle to aerate or breathe them in order to soften the tannins and develop the bouquet sometimes by pouring trough an aerator....

Except you're not softening tannins.
