Wine Dark... Hair?

Wine Dark... Hair? Have there been significant studies of the gradient between black and red hair in literary, visual arts, etc? You see a lot of attention paid to the gradient between blonde and red. Does anyone know anything about this?

I want to describe a color that is not brassy copper from a bottle but is not reddish blonde either. It's not that fake burgundy hair color either. The closest I can think of for this rare shade is "wine dark".
