Inside Text: From the Vine... When checking the color of wine, pour the wine about a third full into a simple glass that curves inward. Holding the glass by the stem, tip it against a white background. A white wine becomes deeper (more golden) with age. With red wines, the more purple the wine, the younger it is. In young wines, the color is usually uniform. The more brown, tawny or orange the wine, the older it is. With age, the color is not uniform and is lighter at the rim of the glass compared with the center.
