Wine splotches are also present on AAB types and some tetraploid genome groups. Pups from my Raja Puri often have wine splotches. The only genome group that doesn't have them that I know of is ABB. To me, this either looks like a Mysore type or possibly a plantain. Could also be something from the Red subgroup.
