Want to make your wine taste better? Run it through a blender.
If you want to class up that boxed wine before a party, you might want to putting it in a blender first.
An article on Lifehacker Former Microsoft CTO and master chef Nathan Myhrvold, who takes a scientific approach to cuisine, indicated in his book "Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking" (which retails for over $400) that frapping wine in a blender for 30 to 60 seconds and allow the froth to subside improves the taste. He calls this method "hyperdecanting" and indicates is works best on young, red wines.
This could be a fun blind taste test to try at your next soiree and let your guest judge it the "hyperdecanted" wine tastes better than the before it was blended.
