Description for the purple-red colouring of a red wine in the context of a wine-appeal. The name is derived from the wines in the typical Bordeaux blend. The synonym "wine-red" indicates that bordeaux red is considered the wine colour par excellence. It is also the only colour designation derived from a region and is not only used for one wine colour but for all wines in general. See also under colour, as well as blue, black and white.
