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...
