Light red wine: 55F
Deep red wines: 59-66F
The process of decanting can make any wine come to life. Transferring the wine from the bottle to a decanter allows the wine to slowly aerate the wine, bringing its flavors and aromas to life. Pour the wine directly into you decanter and let it rest for around 15 minutes before serving.
Pour the wine slowly, being careful not to drip. Fill the glass until it reaches slightly below the widest section of the glass, usually about half full. Once finished, pull the bottle up and back while slightly twisting your wrist counter clockwise.
