What to do? If you love garlic-rich foods (think "40 Clove Chicken"), what wine can you choose? Garlic is so intense a flavor that it tends to overpower any wine and strip away its complexity.
Cooking garlic carmelizes its natural sugars and makes it taste richer, mellower, more complex. When cooked, garlic becomes much more wine friendly.
So, what to choose? Try a chilled, dry rose. Roses combine the earthy, red fruit characterics of light red wine with the lightness and acidity of a good white. The affinity between rose and garlic is remarkable.
Try Toad Hollow "Eye of Toad." Great.
