Personally, I like this red a lot. Of course I like oldies, and this
one is actually a bit on the "modern"-looking side for my tastes. Perhaps
the appeal for me is that it does look somewhat old though. Based on your
photos, it is one of the nicest "reds" I've seen, and I think it is one that
people might like to grow. If it holds color and substance for you in
Arizona, it should be great for me in New Mexico too, and would probably beat
out nearly any other "red" I've grown.
