Decanting - Day 7
I can’t help myself. Just one more gem from the Google search of “decanting, wine” before we begin to get serious about seeing if anything is actually known about what decanting actually does to wine.

From DamnGoodWine.com
“In addition to splashing, I personally 'pour violently' into the bottle, sometimes talking to the bottle in an aggressive tone. I think it helps. This method is for opening up the bouquet in a younger wine.”

Dionysus and Bacchus have always provided the possibility of gratuitous sex along with worship of the fruits of the vine, and now we have an excuse for gratuitous violence – decanting!
