Hey Mambo

A crowd-pleasing blend of attention-grabbing excitement, the Hey Mambo Sultry Red is undeniably a rare find. The 2008 vintage is an ensemble of Syrah, Barbera, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Malbec, and Alicante Bouchet grapes. Full and fleshy, this rendition is a phenomenal accompaniment to game meats, like homemade spicy Habañero-Venison sausages or grilled wild Boar ribs. It is also a great complement to pasta in a simple marinara with fresh grated Parmesan, burgers with white Cheddar and apple wood smoked bacon, and a sure pick for your favorite pizzeria's house-combination pie. Pairings: The deep color of uncut-rubies, this bistro wine features nostalgic aromas of black cherry jam, tobacco barns, and sweet leather, thanks to Syrah and old-world style Barbera. This sultry red has both depth and texture with an intense palate of dense berries, like boysenberry and cassis, courtesy of the Petite Sirah. The Zinfandel, Malbec and Alicante Bouchet, deliver flavors of mulling spices and cracked black pepper with firm tannins and a supple, silky finish.

Wine Enthusiast

This is a wine to drink from a carafe in an inexpensive bistro with just about anything that makes you happy. The cherry-berry flavors will wash down everything from steak to fries.
