2006 Hey Mambo "Sultry Red"

SKU #1035367

From Wine Enthusiast: "In calling this southern Rhône-style blend Bistro Style, the winery means to suggest friends gathered in a nice restaurant, having fun and not being fussy about what’s in the bottle. That perfectly describes this dry, soft red wine, with its flavors of blackberries, cherries and cocoa." (8/1/2008) Put on your dancing shoes before you pop this Zork (yes, I said Zork-the peel and pop synthetic closure). The 2006 Hey Mambo is a fun blend of barbera, syrah, petit sirah, carignane and alicante bouchet that gets you moving with aromas of sweet leather, chocolate ganache, raspberries and spicy clove. The palate is filled with sweet fruit redolent of blackberry cobbler highlighted by espresso, dark chocolate and dried herbs. This is no "serious" wine, but a satiny, sipper perfect for a bistro meal.

I love the spicy, hot and very latin flavor of Hey Mambo. I am a Francophile by birth but this is a really spicy red wine that does California proud!
Drink from 2008 to 2009

This is such a fun wine. Great for a evening of wine and cheese with friends or candlelight and chocolate with a loved one. Hard not to love a wine with dancing figures on the label that simply speaks to what is one the inside; flavors that sparkle and tango over your tongue and tantalize the palate.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
