Vine ID?

This vine was growing up a trellis on the back porch of a nursery I visited in MO. The leaves are heavy substance and the vine itself is quite dense. It's very pretty. I couldn't find a label on it and noone was nearby to ask.
I know my brilliant forum friends will have an answer for me! :D

I tried my gardening partners here at work but the best suggestion I got was 'kudzu'. When I googled kudzu it looks like the flowers are different, and maybe the leaf shape too.

Possibly Crimsion glory vine. Although the leaf veins don't look quite right, the leaf shape, flowers, and berries are close.It gets a bright red, fall color.

We have it growing at our local Macomb Farmers Market and it is really a cool looking vine, kinda reminds me of the Hyancynth Vine
