Hey Mambo Sultry Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A crowd-pleasing blend of attention-grabbing excitement, the Hey Mambo Sultry Red is undeniably a rare find. The vintage is an ensemble of Syrah, Barbera, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Malbec, and Alicante Bouchet grapes. Full and fleshy, this rendition is a phenominal accompaniment to game meats, like homemade spicy Habanero-Venison sausages or grilled wild Boar ribs. It is also a great compliment to pasta in a simple marinara with fresh grated Parmesan, burgers with white Cheddar and applewood smoked bacon, and a sure pick for your favorite pizzaria's house combination pie. 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, Mabec and Alicante Bouchet, deliver flavors of mulling spices and cracked black pepper with firm tannins and a supple, silky nish.

The color immediately gives indication to the depth of this 2011 Mambo Red Blend. It sits in the glass with dark purple, almost black in color which releases an aroma of rich French and American Oak with dark raspberry, herb de Provence, and fresh from the oven blackberry pie bouquet. Your first sip sits forward with flavors of juicy pomegranate, ripe plum, and boysenberry. As the flavors open up, you notice more Tahitian vanilla bean, dried blueberry, fig, and integrated sweet cinnamon notes. On the finish, the wine has a warm edge with light white pepper spice wrapped around rich toasted marshmallow and blackberry jam.I would pair this wine with grilled chicken and grilled pineapple rings alongside some rice pilaf and green beans, Grandma's meatloaf with sautéed carrots, mashed potatoes and gravy, or a grown-up grilled cheese sandwich with rye bread and smoked gruyere cheese with bacon. This wine makes me think of comfort food and a comfortable chair at the end of a long day. - WineryBlend:36% Sirah18% Petite Sirah16% Zinfandel8% Merlot7% Tannat6% Cab Franc5% Alicante Bouchet4% TempranilloAppellation:41% Lodi41% Paso Robles10% Sierra Foothills8% MontereypH: 3.67TA: 0.59 g/100mLsAlc: 13.5%Residual Sugar: 0.65 g/100mLs

Deep purple in color, this blend shows aromas of warm baked berry cobbler spiked with cinnamon and nutmeg. Toasted French oak marrying with jammy blueberry and cherry sing from the glass. Raspberry and wild strawberry flavors present in the mouth, which slowly meld into cedar, dark plums, white pepper, molasses, and tealeaf notes. On the finish, you experience dark raspberry flavors along with bright acidity, notes of a fresh cup of cappuccino, and rich integrated oak with hints of caramel and cloves. - Winery
