Turbidity in color is generally accepted as a defect, especially nowadays, some wines may be subjected to limited filtration from time to time to prevent loss of flavor, and in this case, a slightly cloudy color of the wine may be considered normal. As red wines age, their dark color lightens and turns to brown, brick-like hues. However, what is common for aged wines, if this occurs in a young wine, it will indicate premature aging of the wine.
