Winemaker Notes

This wine's aroma is layered with our signature vanilla bean and brandy soaked cherry notes. Your first sip once again showcases pure boysenberry jam, leading to flavors of cherry cobbler, fresh blueberries, and vanilla crème pie. The finish is reminiscent of fresh coconut milk, fresh cherry, raspberry soda and vanilla ice cream.

This vivacious wine would pair best with a simple marinara sauce over your favorite noodle or spaghetti squash. Another complementary pairing would be a vegetarian pizza with fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella and garlic.

Blend: 41% Zinfandel, 31% Merlot, 13% Barbera, 11% Petite Sirah, 2% Ruby Cabernet, 2% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

WW 88
Wilfred Wong of
A fine and fun red wine, the 2015 Hey Mambo Sultry Red drinks very easily. Showing loads of ripe berries and jam, this smooth-sailing wine stays round and sumptuous on the palate. Give it a slight chill and serve it with a mushroom and sausage pizza. (Tasted: May 8, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Hey Mambo, California
Savor every drop of these eyebrow raising, proprietary blends combining traditional California and Italian varietals. Hey Mambo is a tribute to classic Blue Note Record albums, while giving a glimpse into a bygone era, filled with music and energy.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from tiny, family-owned boutiques to massive corporations, and price and production are equally varied. Plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Valley area, while Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Each American Viticultural Area (AVA) and sub-AVA of has its own distinct personality, allowing California to produce wine of every fashion: from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate vineyard acreage. Sonoma County is best known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône Blends blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with cool climate varieties such as Pinot noir, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, any wine lover will find something to get excited about here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
