Howdy, wine drinker.

I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.

Today, I’ll be sharing an honest wine review and suggesting a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.

In today’s video, we’ve got an interesting chicken roasted dish.

It’s crusted with a unique flavor that we haven’t tried yet.

And then we’re going to pair it with a nice red wine.

Let’s go ahead and check out the wine.

Twelftree Gomersal Grenache 2011

We’ve got a Twelftree.

This is a Grenache out of one of my favorite regions in the world, Barossa Valley, and see here.

This is going to be 14.2% alcohol.

And what else?


This is a solid wine.

I’ll get to the pricing later on.

It’s a little pricier than some of the pairings that we do.

We haven’t done more of an expensive wine.

But this 2011 out of South Australia, I think, is going to rock.

I’m so excited.

And let’s give it a try.

Let’s check out our pairing.

Garam Masala-Crusted Chicken with Fig Jus

OK, so we’ve got a really cool pairing today.

I’m excited for this one.

It’s a crusted chicken but it’s garam masala.

So we made we think it’s about 1/2 a cup of the garam masala with some oil, and I just lathered it in here.

Got inside, outside, all the way around.

And it’s going to be topped with a fig jus, which has honey, fresh fig, and a little bit of garlic in it.

I’m excited to give it a try.

Make sure you get to see it right there.

Do a little spinaroo for you.

Very good.

This thing roasted for a couple hours between temperatures

I’m stoked.

Let’s give it a try.

I’m going to start with that Grenache.

14.2% alcohol?


Now full disclosure, I don’t really enjoy chicken with reds too much myself as a white meat.

I know you can do it.

Done it.

Just not one of my favorites.

But I think the flavors of the garam masala are going to go nicely with this, with the flavors of the Grenache.

So this wine is out of this world.

I can’t stop drinking it.

Let’s give a bite.

I think this baby is going to pop off really good with our Grenache.

You can see here that’s fig.

Got a nice bite of the chicken.

That garam masala that’s baked in there, not overpowering, but with the fig dynamite.

For the moment of truth.

Give It a Try!

Dynamite pairing.

Make sure you try this.

Get that recipe right there.

And if you’re going to pick up this Twelftree Gomersal Grenache, 2011 out of South Australia, Barossa Valley.

Love it.
