Anyone have an ink that reminds them of wine?  Noodler's Saguaro Wine is my first thought...  For bonus points, maybe a wine that doubles as ink?

DeAtramentis Syrah  - actually DeAtramentis has a whole series of "wine" inks - actually made from wine. 


Best always,

Diamine Syrah is based on Richard Binder’s Burgundy mixture, which is half Waterman purple and half Sheaffer red. Here’s a recent discussion.

J Herbin Poussiere de Lune in a clear demonstrator when placed next to a glass of Burgundy (or another pinot noir) looks very similar in colour and viscosity, and if you spill either on paper, both wet and dry they look similar.

Don't know how readily available it is, but right now I've got Campo Marzion Bordeaux in a pen, and it it looks like a red wine.  Maybe some sort of table wine (not some snooty varietal).

De Atramentis has a whole line of wine based inks: https://www.de-atram...en&currency=EUR

 

They actually use wine to make these inks. I have the Spaetburgunder and it looks and even smells like wine.

Shaeffer burgundy looks like grape juice. Does that count?
