The color of white wine gets darker as it ages, while red wine gets lighter in color.

The older a white wine is, the darker its color will be. The opposite is true for red wines which get lighter with age. Young wines also tend to be more translucent and bright in colorwhile older wines will start to dull. Just think about how fruit eventually turns brown when exposed to air.
