Try soaking with plain white vinegar, if that doesn't work scrub with a non-abrasive cloth and some baking soda.

Fill the decanter with a cup of cold water add 2 tablespoons of uncooked rice. Put the stoper on and hold it down while shaking the decanter, the rice will scrub the stain off.

Dampen the crystal with water or window cleaner. Sprinkle some Whiting* on the stain; enough to make a poultice. Rub gently with a soft, non-abrasive, cotton cloth. It should remove the stain(s)almost instantly.

Not only will the stain be removed, but the whiting will polish your crystal as new!
*Whiting can be found in the paint dept. and will not scratch any enameled or glass surface.

I have dried-on wine-stains inside a crystal decanter. They are proving difficult to remove. How can I remove them?
