    Thanks so much for your help. I appreciate it. I remember now that I asked an American friend sometime ago about that color and he told me it was burgundy. Is red wine also a name for the color or just for the wine itself?

    The word for the color burgundy comes from the name of a specific type of red wine, which in turn comes from the name of some place in France. So I'd use "burgundy" to describe anything red wine colored, though in poetry things could be described as "the color of red wine". Good flowery language.

    I totally agree with you. Just to complete your information, I want to add that the French city (and the wine itself) is Bordeaux
