Food and Wine Dictionary

Blue text or background indicates a wine entry.


The color of a wine is an indicator of its condition, quality, age, and even style. In general, the less intense a wine's color is, the more delicate the flavor and BODY will be. The color of any good wine should be clear. As wines AGE, their colors change-white wines become darker, often with traces of amber; red wines begin to fade and often assume a tawny, brick-red cast. A change of color in a young wine signals premature aging.
