"Barrel Tasting"?

So I bought tickets for a barrel tasting event at a local vineyard (Connecticut, so I'm not expecting Napa!)

But what *should* I expect? I'm not a wine expert, but did my fair share of wine tastings when we lived out in the Bay Area. What's the "draw" of barrel tasting? Is it so that you can taste how the wine matures in the barrel?
