The sediment won't build up if you "turn" the bottles periodically.

Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.

Sediment is actually somewhat common in good red wines. Since the color and flavor of red wines comes from fermenting the juice with the skinds, seeds, sometimes part of the vine all together, some of that stuff is going to stay with the juice. Rotating the bottle will mix it up, sure, but I'd rather leave that stuff nice and settled at the bottom of the bottle and away from my glass! :-)

Hope you enjoyed it Sweeny! I always thought that the best reasons to open an old/good bottle were because you've got people to enjoy it with, and it's there!
