Reply to "To decant or not to decant?"

whenever i open a bottle of red i immediately have a taste, then decant, .... then i wait about 45 to an hour then taste again...it is surprising how good it can taste (compared to immediately drinking a glass) just by waiting...I don't know why i always do this ...but i do. There is a particular red from chile that i often buy that is a carmenere and it really doesn't taste good right out of the bottle but by decanting it and then tasting later makes all the difference. Not all reds need decanting, however. Try doing this with every red that you crack open at home. It has become a habit for me, is all....
