Wine Decanter Guide For younger red wines, where there is little or no sediment, splash the wine while decanting, allowing for more aeration. For older red wines (more likely to have sediment) Stand the bottle up for several hours to allow the sediment to settle to the bottom Pour the wine gently and slowly into the decanter in front of a light source. Stop pouring when you observe sediment traveling up the neck of the wine bottle. Let the wine aerate in the decanter 30 minutes to one hour before serving.
