I think really nice black walnut almost has a purple hue / red but more purple but when finished applied it goes very dark.

Also lot’s of wood stores sell steamed walnut, they introduce steam when it get kiln dried which makes the dark wood bleed into the sap wood, I think they do this to get better grades because usually the sap wood is almost bright white.

I like both ways but good old fasion air dried and touched up in a kiln is best.
