Don't put the wine back in the cellar unless you like to drink it that cold. I find that red wines are better closer to room temperature, 65 degrees or so.


I'll gently disagree with you on this Doug. Since most folks don't have a 65° holding area for their decanted wines, I think it's perfectly reasonable for the wine to be returned to the cellar. It's either warm the wine from the cellar, or cool the wine from room temperature. Personally, I prefer to start cooler and see the wine progress as it warms, than vice versa.
