Why do people swirl wine in their glass?

Swirling in your glass

Hey, nice legs! You'll hear that next time you swirl your wine glass at a party. Legs refer to the wine that trickles down the inside of the glass after it has been swirled. In addition to getting that compliment, you will also be helping your wine to breath, which in turn gives you a better glass of wine. Swirling the wine in your glass allows oxygen to get into the wine. This changes the taste slightly and balances it out. It can even soften a wine which may have been opened too soon.
