In terms of white wine, it become deeper (more golden) with age. Whereas in 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 centre.

Generally, the lighter the color of the wine, the cooler the climate. However, certain grape varieties are characteristically light or dark in color.
