For 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!
