Specifically: How would I know that a wine is going through a dumb phase versus it being past its peak? Why does it go through a dumb phase? Is there any way to project when it will enter/leave a dumb phase?
I'm guessing that this is going to be simliar to determining if the economy is in a recession...The only way to know is after-the-fact...
just to clarify, does this mean that a wine approaches its peak, goes through a local minimum for a while after the peak, hits a secondary peak some years later, then really begins its dénouement?
