This is a terrific article.  Thank you very much, Spike.

Of course, now, because "'for a given glass shape, the mixing and oxygenation may be optimized with an appropriate choice of shaking diameter and rotation speed,'" I'll have to adjust the rotational speed of my swirling every time I use a different glass. ;-)

Good find, and post, Spike. Once again people that know, know, before they're told why they know.  ;-)

"Some wines are to dry for the consumer's taste due to the tannic acids so swirling the glass draws oxygen from the air into the wine. "

?

But I agree - sure do like the name.

Yes.  Some wines are to drink and some are to dry.  Sometimes you really don't wan't a wet wine--very rare, though.

That makes me an "orbital shake and bake" guy, I guess.  That's a pretty amusing article.  Hope that research was funded by the wine industry, or some tea partiers will attack it as a waste of federal funds...
