    Depends on the wine. The purpose of letting one breath is to oxidize the tannins and bring out the aroma and flavor. An hour is good for many reds. More than four  hours is usually too much; the wine will degrade, losing it characteristics and becoming good for nothing but cooking or making vinegar. It varies a lot, though. Simpler, younger wines typically benefit more from breathing than do mature, complex ones. In fact, you can make a cheap wine taste like one of moderate quality by blending it with another compatible one, and letting it breath for a couple of hours before having any. Just remember not to let any wine sit out open too long. If you don't drink it all, use one of those rubber valve corks and a vacuum pump to make it last another day or two in the refrigerator.

      Thank you for your reply Attikos. I wished I could have voted it up half a dozen times at least!

    I actually wrote a hub on this called "how long does an opened bottle of wine last?"  Generally you get a couple of good days, but there are some tricks to extend an opened bottle.

    Around my house, and amongst my friends, a bottle of wine NEVER lasts more than 45 minutes!!!! (.... and that goes even for those big 'Magnum" bottles!!!)
