Thanks for reporting a problem. We'll attach technical data about this session to help us figure out the issue. Which of these best describes the problem?

Any other details or context?



The answer is, it's all about air - and taste. When you have a fresh bottle of wine, it's been bottled up with a tight cork in it. Decanting the wine gives it air - aeration - letting it breath. And because two of the five things you look for in a wine have to do with the nose, air is important.
