Response to Interesting observation....
I was in Taiwan back in the late 1990's.
One evening, I had a private meal with a special dining partner, and somehow, we got so drunk that we fell asleep (separately, of course) and left the bottle of red (Ch. Montelena?) open all night; also leftover in the glass.
The first thought was to pour out the wine in the glass and timidly try what was left in the bottle.
Both were just short of magnificent, though it was clear even the aging in glass vs in bottle (not to mention mixed up with human enzymes in the glass) allowed each portion to develop differently.
Wine is a very interesting, unpredictable and often inconsistent subject.
And many "conventional wisdoms" are fundamentally dubious...
