Shooting wine for color

Worked on a fun project for Shafer Vineyards and Andy Demsky, trying to show how wine changes color when it ages. Our problem? We were using Shafer wines, that hold up astonishingly well. I found that swirling the wine was the best way to show the color gradations. Andy came over and swirled for me while I shot. The shot below (a composite of 4 different shots) shows, from left to right, a 2012, 2003, 1991, and a 1978. In addition to exporting the color, the swirling adds a sense of drama and artistry to the shots that was surprising!
