Bedrock Wine Co. article on Barrel Selection

If you've ever tasted the same wine from different barrels (and if you haven't then Del Dotto winery in Napa Valley is a good place to start) then you'll know what a huge difference the various types of barrel can make. Barrels are a winemaker's spice rack; they each add different qualities to the wine. I don't normally "reblog" other people's stuff, since if you don't have anything to add there's very little point, but I thought this article on barrel selection was worth noting.
