From AIS Bulletin #244 January 1982 Introducing MULLED WINE (Keppel '82) L 36" ((((Amigo's Guitar x (Rip. Waters x Gypsy Lullaby)) x {Jones 743 x (Marq. Skies x Babbling Brook))) x Salmon River) X Maraschino). Hearty raspberry burgundy with faint apricot undertoning on upper part of falls. Prominent terracotta beards. Ruffled and laced; heavy substance. #76-35C. $30.00. Keith Keppel.
"The richness and newness of color in MULLED WINE (Keppel '82) again attracted much attention. The number of branches and bud count are low, and the vigor is somewhat suspect, but one cannot fault the form and richness of color. Fortunately, it is already proving to be an important parent, as was evidenced by the new release across town, EVER AFTER (Keppel '86), which has all the buds and vigor that its parent lacks." [Perry Dyer (Oklahoma), “Melrose Gardens”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 263, (October 1986): 21.]
