Carvalho Boat Shed Red sans Garlic!

Friday, September 19th, 2008

Tonight I actually made dinner: chicken artichoke roulette.  That’s what I’m calling it anyway.  Saltiness of the artichokes with some garlic and a tiny bit of parmasean.  I have to say it turned out pretty good, if I say so myself.  Of course we didn’t have any vegetables in the house so we basically had chicken and bread for dinner.  But this isn’t a chicken and bread blog…with my chicken roulette we had our last bottle of Carvalho’s Boat Shed Red.  If you red read one of my previous blogs you’ll know that we got this from Mrs. Carvalho herself (and in two weeks is the big grape stomp at the Sugar Mill…fireman…if you live near Sac look into it.)  So tonight, with this garlic-y dish the Boat Shed Red goes perfectly.  It’s a blend, not too bold, easy to drink and has a really nice finish.  We decide we need more.  It retails for 19.95 so it’s a good deal.  It also won bronze medal at the 2008 California State Fair.
This is how they describe it (if you don’t trust my garlic intoxiated tastebuds): This wine is a stunning, robust wine offering black cherry with notes of cracked white pepper and cedar. It has a powerful mouth feel with raspberry, blackberry & bing cherry flavors that linger through the finish.

 Signing off… enjoy a bottle of wine (or two!) this weekend.
