Stoutridge red wines have a very long aging potential and as such can benefit from decanting upon opening. Pour the wine carefully into a decanter leaving the last ounce in the bottle with any heavy sediment (a bottle holds 25 ounces). Wait 1-2 hours and serve.

The reds benefitted from cool weather during the fermentation which led to full flavor extraction and smoothness from tannin polymerization.
