Thanks! I might try that one :)

 

Interesting! Does this have any negative effects on the pen/writing? Thanks!

 

Those are gorgeous indeed! Would you rate them as wet inks?

 

Yes, because I love them.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Diamine Syrah or Merlot. Have them both, they are different, but can be a good match. Someone mentioned Oxblood, well, personally wouldn't say it as close call as Merlot or Syrah.

Well, there is a Spanish wine from Torres called "Sangre du Toro".

You may also want to consider De Atramentis Thomas Alva Edison.  It isn't super wet, but it flows very nicely in my driest fine point.   And it does not lighten up too much when using a fine point and stays a nice wine color.  It does shade a little bit, and has a little bit of sheen when used heavily.  It also dries reasonably quickly, but is quite water soluble.  

 

Personally, I love Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Bordeaux.  It is very wet in my medium point pens, and shades nicely.  The dry time is a bit longer on better papers.

I also recommended Alt Bordeaux and was surprised when someone else described it as dry.

No one said Oxblood?

 

Maybe you prefer a rosé wine (R&K Fernambuk) or even a white wine (R&K Alt Goldgrün)

Yes to Alt Goldgrun! I have ordered this gorgeous ink recently. It is interesting that you consider this a "white wine" color. I hear a lot of people calling it an "olive" color.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions! All these colors are gorgeous! If only I could splurge and buy them all! (Time to hunt down samples)
