Not that you need an excuse, but a nice glass of Shiraz, Pinor Noir or Merlot will help make your heart happy today. GO RED NORTH FULTON!
Shiraz red wines are spicier flavored varieties with black fruit such as black currants mixed with the deep red grapes. Pinot Noir, a lighter red wine with a fruitier base and Merlot, a medium red yet savory wine, are alternative healthy reds with flavonoids and antioxidants. Syrah, Pinot Noir and Merlot are available at your local market. These three red wine varieties are not as rich bodied or robustly flavored as Cabernet Sauvignon or Madiran, but they offer you similar health benefits from moderate consumption, according to the Yale-New Haven Hospital.
