Super Sexy ...

We had a long day at the office yesterday, a long night at the gym and were starving! What to do! Why Mambo!! We opened up a GREAT bottle of bistro style wine - the only way to describe this find "Sexy"! Smoky on the nose and smooth on the palate. I had a feeling when I saw the label that they may be the guys behind another favorite of mine, Plungerhead Zin, which is fantastic - super spicy and loaded with nice jammy flavors, a must for your b-b-q! Anyhow, Mambo is about to become a staple in our house & we are hoping we can grab a case later today! Now, we could not live on wine alone, so we tossed together some cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, sliced garlic, Spanish olive oil and pasta to chow on. For dessert, homemade Fig ice cream from "The Perfect Scoop"! By the way, the ice cream gave the wine a soft vanilla taste ... long flavorful finish! Can not wait to get home tonight and drink more!

So glad you liked the Fig Ice Cream. Wish I was there...especially to help finish off the last of that Zinfandel.
