For the West, and very likely further South, this is a very desirable

grape for wine, of the Herbemont class. Bunch compact and heavy,

sometimes shouldered; berry rather small, black, without pulp, juicy

sweet and good; productive, but somewhat tender; strong grower; should

be covered in Winter; makes a very delicious wine, of the Madeira

class, which very often remains sweet for a whole year. Ripens late,

about a week after the Catawba.
