Well, the pot appears to be near boiling thank you!
This is less a matter of who's right and wrong than being open minded. Questions about wine, like most questions, are best decided by science than by professionals.
In the case of magnets, an enormous amount of scientific knowledge exists re magnetism. None of this knowledge supports the idea that magnets will "age" or improve wine.
I try keeping up on this literature but am unaware of the studies you are referring to. Help?
Several people did separate double-blind tests of the various wine on the Randi.org site.
Robin also reported on one:

There was also this one from a British college:
My favorite was the one where the radiologists put wine in an MRI machine, but I can't find that one.
James Randi also offered the maker of the Wine Clip a chance at his $1 Million prize , but the maker refused to participate in the test.
I'd be thrilled at the thought someone would do a big doubleblind test of travel shock. Until they do, as I noted, I'll try and play it safe as much as possible.
