Wine Tip of the Week - Summer Heat will Destroy Your Wine!

Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!
We are having record breaking temperatures of 110 degrees in Arizona and it's only the first of June! Time to provide a friendly reminder that heat (and it doesn't have to be over 100 degrees!) will damage a wine very quickly. 

Any temperatures over 75 degrees can start to flatten a wines flavors, and higher temperatures can cause a wine to taste "stewed" - which means tastes like raisins or (oh boy!) prunes!). So when buying wine this summer, make sure it is your last stop before heading home - or you could end up with an unpleasant "cooked" wine.
