Red wines should be uncorked hours before serving or decanted to show their best. The vast majority of red wines do not need to be opened to "breathe" or decanted to show their best. In fact, I would estimate only 15-20 percent of all wine produced today should be given air before serving. The wines that benefit from aeration tend to come from specific places and are made in relatively small quantities. The vast majority of red wines can be simply opened and immediately poured to be fully enjoyed.
