Superbowl, BBQ Chicken and The Velvet Devil

the vevlet devilFor Superbowl Sunday, my goal was to minimize time in the kitchen and spend more time watching the game.  I pulled out my handy slow cooker and made BBQ chicken.  My sides were just as simple – smashed yams and salad.

I decided to pair my meal with The Velvet Devil Merlot.  Over the summer I drank both Charles Smith’s Red Devil and Charles and Charles Rosé, and really enjoyed both.  I knew going into this meal, that my wine selection would not disappoint.  The fruits and tannins of the wine stood up nicely to my rich, flavorful meal.

To be honest, I have yet to try a Charles Smith wine that I didn’t like and I hope to be able to go visit his winery soon.

…and now back to the game!
