покачивая кларет в огромном дегустационном бокале
Explanation:
Sommelierrs (those who taste wine) use special goblets to do so. =)

The second phrase I'd translate as "хорошо идёт" (goes well) in an informal context.

Вращать огромный барменский бокал кларета (чтобы распределить вино по стенкам бокала)


Explanation:
Roll around здесь, очевидно, означает обычное для дегустаторов действие, когда они вращают бокал в разные стороны, распределяя его по стенкам бокала (чтобы лучше почувствовать запах или увидеть консистенцию, по-видимому).
Sniffer - бокал, суженный кверху (Lingvo 6)
Sommelier - wine waiter, wine steward -- (a waiter who manages wine service in a hotel or restaurant)
delivers well on the swallow - приятен (вызывает приятные ощущения) при глотании/в горле
