The 7Cellars Wine Word of the Week – Dusty

In the wine world, the word “dusty” can have a few different meanings and can be used in a positive or negative way. It can refer to a wine that has been aged for a long time and has developed a complex flavor profile. It can also refer to a wine that has been stored improperly and has lost some of its freshness. When used to describe a wine that has been aged, the word “dusty” Some people enjoy the complex flavors that develop in aged wines, while others find them to be too earthy or musty.
