“A HOT Red for the Summer”

Finally, summer is almost here! But does the scorching Texas heat mean that we all have to temporarily give up on red wine? Of course NOT! Like most of our guests, I’m more of a red wine drinker. There’s nothing like a good light body red or a rose to help me and my wife unwind after a long work day. Well,…….we found it! The perfect light body red to help keep you cool during the upcoming summer months.

This diamond in the rough comes out of Germany from the Valley of “Hex of Dasenstein”. Now try to repeat that ten times in a row. It is the “Amour” 2007 Pinot Noir. As its name suggests, you will definitely fall in love. As soon as the elixir kisses you, be prepared to discover the romantic charm of its deep color and sensuous sweetness. It will seduce you with a rich dense fruit bouquet and bring to mind memories of sweet cherries, elderberries and cassis.

“Amour” 2007 Pinot Noir, a sweet red wine full of passion for romantic moments in the hot summer nights. Best served slightly chilled, you can experience it at Mercy for $15/glass or $45/bottle.
