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.
