Negative description for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine address. A wine described in this way has passed its peak and has more or less lost its fullness of flavour. As a result, the acids can also emerge more aggressively. Related terms are thin, bland, over, hollow and overaged. The negative climax is dead. See also aging, bottle ripening and drinking maturity.
