The red grape variety is an open flowered seedling of (Jaeger 43 x Rupestris). It contains genes from Vitis lincecumii and Vitis rupestris. The selection was made in 1892 by the US botanist Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913). The hybrid is extremely frost-resistant (down to -34 °C) and resistant to Pierce disease. It is used to produce wines similar to port wine. The vine is also used as table grape. It was a cross-breeding partner of the new Universal variety. In 2010 no stock was identified (Kym Anderson).
