The grill beckons in the waning days of summer, and few wines are as versatile with barbecue as California Zinfandel. That sort of hearty, flame-licked food finds a tasty partner with big, bold Zin. The new-release wines below fit that bill deliciously. They are all from California's Zin heartland, Sonoma County, and earned outstanding scores on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale.
