few weeks earlier i came across an article on net which was by Don Burleson

Manners and etiquette for professionals

Wine rituals at dinnertime
He who grabs the wine list, gets the check - If you are picking-up the dinner tab, you must make sure that you reach-out for the wine list (this is a well-understood signal to the waiter that you are the person taking the check), and this will avoid the awkward check-grabbing contest at the end of the meal.
The initial presentation - The waiter shows you the bottle. Your only job is to take a quick glance and make sure that it's the wine that you ordered, and you just read he name and vintage, and nod. You are not supposed to examine the bottle
The cork presentation - The waiter hands you the cork for the sole purpose of examination, not sniffing. Improperly-stored wines (placed vertically) will allow the cork to dry out, resulting in an air-breach will cause the wine to turn to vinegar. Just do a quick sniff, and hand it back. It's extremely unlikely that you will get a bad bottle, and believe me, you will know it the instant you sniff the cork and detect the scent reminiscent of dirty socks.

The sip test - At this point the waiter will place a tasting amount of wine wine and step back. This is your signal to small and taste the wine. Simply swirl the wine in your mouth to release its natural aroma and stick you nose into the glass while inhaling deeply. Next, take a very small sip, swishing the wine evenly across your tongue. Next, turn to the waiter, and nod your approval.

cheers ~!~
