Red Wine and BBQ

Are you hosting a BBQ this weekend or attending one. Don't know what type of wine to bring. Here's a suggestion:
Zinfandel is a natural match with traditional American food. This will go well with burgers and steaks. It's a simple fruity wine, some with hints of strawberries. Other good barbecue choices include Petite Sirah and Gamay. If you've never heard of Gamay, it actually grows very well here in the Hudson Valley. I believe Whitecliff Winery in Gardiner produced a Gamay last year or the year before. It was very good. Light and fruity with earthy overtones.
