    How do you decant wine properly?

    A:

    To properly decant wine, first sit the wine bottle upright for at least 24 hours to allow the sediment to settle. Remove the cork, and arrange a flashlight or candle to shine on the bottle neck as you slowly pour the wine into the decanter. Stop pouring immediately when the sediment reaches the neck of the bottle, and serve the wine from the decanter.
