Happy Hour: Hey Mambo 2006 Sultry Red

One of the wines I enjoyed at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Tasting was Hey Mambo by Don Sebastiani & Sons. The wine is part of their "Other Guys" collection and is considered to be a Sultry Red, bistro-style wine. I'll admit it now: I was definitely drawn to it because of it's swank packaging — oh wait, their white is swanky, their red is sultry. The stark graphic label caught my eye from across the room, and so I decided to give it a try.

The wine itself has quite a lot of character. It's not an amazing wine, but for under $10 a bottle, it's really quite nice. It's a blend of several different grapes and is very fruity with tones of blackberries, raspberries, and chocolate. It's definitely not a wine to go with a serious meal, but if you're headed to a party, or are getting ready for a night out, Hey Mambo will help you slip into your dancing shoes.
