 red wine 

A wine made from dark-skinned grapes (red, purple, black, blue), which remains in contact with the grape skins (from which color is extracted) during FERMENTATION. The pulp or flesh isn't generally red, the rare exceptions being TEINTURIER grapes like ALICANTE BOUSCHET. BLUSH and ROSÉ wines are a lighter color because they're not kept in contact with the skins as long.
