Shy

A ‘shy’ wine is one that seems straightforward or unbalanced now, but that’s destined for great things in the future. This is typically the case with wines that require extensive aging. Drink great Barolo, riesling, or Cornas too young, and they’ll be dominated by tannins or acidity or dusty earthiness. They’re still figuring themselves out. Give them another decade to mature, and they’ll evolve into the wines their parents always thought they’d be: world-beaters.
