Since the flavor from the barrel is introduced fairly late in the wine's development it tends to concentrate in the outer layers. When you swirl the wine counter-clockwise it dislodges that flavor, while at the same, pushing liquid into the pores, inhibiting the fruit flavors that are inside the cell from coming out.

There's plenty more where that came from

How does the wine know what direction it is being swirled?

Does it care about CW/CCW?

What happens if the barrel is inverted?

Freaking Wine Snobs!!

Thank you for that! I was in giggles by the time I hit the part about the polarity of wine cells.
