Pulse Drinking: H. Mynors 2014 Old Vine Zinfandel is made for grilling and chilling

Uncork a bottle of H. Mynors 2014 Old Vine Zinfandel with some friends. It’s as close as you can get to a can’t-miss summer wine. At $16.99, you better pick up two bottles. You might not have any left in your glass before you get the grill lit. You don’t have to rack your brain on the perfect food pairing either. Just grill and chill. I had it with grilled Sicilian sausage, dates stuffed with candied pecans, a slice of Caveman blue cheese AND Baci hazelnut chocolates from the homeland. The wine’s lush blackberry and elderberry flavors are so enticing. They bring out the best of your barbecue. One sip and you might be tempted to jump up on your game day tailgate and sing your team’s fight song. But egads. That wouldn’t be proper.
