Back in July a friend gave me a bottle of Blackberry wine he had just made. The color was a pretty red and it was clear. I put it in the basement to age a little. Yesterday I was moving things around and I noticed that this ine was a very dark almost purple and had a little sediment in it. The basement stays cool around 60*.

What do you think happened?

Clear is a relative term.

Sediment in home made wine is not anything to worry about.

Color change could be natural also or it could be oxidation.
