From the bottle:
"Here's to music and dance -- and wine. Hey Mambo! Like riffs from old Blue Note records, our stripes cue up syncopated rhythms -- lively and exciting, just like our wines. And like the notes of a song -- or steps to a dance -- our varietals are artfully blended to captivate. So celebrate!
Hey mambo Dry Rosé. Fruity bright -- yet surprisingly delicate! Notes of strawberry and watermelon rub shoulders with rose petal -- then slide into a finish of soft cherry and tangerine peel.
Hot summer days call for cool drinks, and a nice chilled dry rosé is at the top of my refreshment list. Dry refers to a low sweetness level (residual sugar), but that doesn't mean a lack of fruit. Many dry rosés are loaded with fruit flavors and that's exactly what we have here today.
The 2013 Hey Mambo Dry Rosé begins with very pleasant aromas of strawberry, orange, lime, cherry and floral notes. The wine tastes very fruity with lots of strawberry, peach and cran-apple flavors. It also features a smooth, full texture with very good acidity and a bit of spicy minerality and sea salt. It ends dry and crisp with lovely fruit notes that last a very long time. Highly recommended!
