Hey Mambo Sultry Red 2011

Hey Mambo is one of the labels of The Other Guys, a company founded by August and Mia Sebastiani of Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery fame. When the prominent family company was sold in 2001 to Constellation Brands, he was motivated along with his sister Mia to establish a company that would “continue their family’s reputation for quality winemaking for generations to come”. They believe crafting quality wines is dependent on a strong family foundation like “ the early days when all wine companies were family owned and operated”. The Other Guys are also behind Pennywise, Plungerhead, and The White Knight labels, to name a few.

Dark red-violet in colour with aromas of violets, black currant and black pepper. Jammy blueberry and blackberry flavours were complimented by savoury black olive notes in the nearly full body, whilst smoky earth, vanilla, sweet caramel and rich cedar elements comprised the lengthy finish. This is a straightforward, easy drinking, crowd pleaser that pairs well with just about any dish. [And a great value.]
