I wouldn't even decant it. Stand it upright a day before you want to serve and pour very carefully into your glasses.
We had a 78 Clos du Val Reserve Cab last night. A bit funky on the opening nose, and had enough body and palate left for one glass. Second glass was beyond flat. If we had decanted and then poured, I'm not sure there would have been anything on the palate.
I'd love to see your review in CT.
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy." Benjamin Franklin
