Grapevine leafroll infection

In red grape varieties, after infection with the grapevine leafroll virus, red blotches spread across the leaves of the vine, leaving distinctive green veins.

As the disease progresses, the edges of the leaves begin to roll under and each leaf takes on a straight-sided appearance.
