Here's a question regarding the opposite end of the wine service spectrum. Do you think that a restaurant which prides itself on its wine list and wine service should automatically rinse the decanter with an appropriate wine prior to decanting the wine you ordered? I've been to a couple of wonderful restaurants where the only minor complaint of the evening was that this service was not offered and the server seemed puzzled by what I was asking.
My thoughts too. At any decent restaurant the decanter should be clean and dry.
What wine are they supposed to rinse the decanter with? My nice bottle or whatever by-the-glass crap they have that may have been open 3 days?
