ELKHART (Lap.)-This is a very good red of substance. As seen in the South, the general impression was that it could be better branched; others thought it not needed; personally I liked it well enough to be glad that I have it. Rating 85. [Chas. E. F. Gersdorff, “Varietal Notes”, A.I.S. Bulletin 75 (December 1939): 37.]
