My husband loves to grill, but grilling chicken has not been at the top of the list for his best grilled meals...until recently.  And, I owe it all to my wine writing, wine loving pal Mary Cressler, of the fabulous wine blog Vindulge, and her grill master husband, Sean.  Sean's Basic Grilled and Glazed Chicken Recipe is fool proof and the absolute best grilled chicken of all-time.  The day we made chicken grilling history in our household (thanks to Sean) was on a very rare 80 degree April afternoon in the South Willamette Valley, so I sought out a wine a wine with complexity that could be served chilled. I found J.K. Carriere Glass 2013 Willamette Valley White Pinot Noir - a truly incredible wine and a super fine match with the Grilled and Glazed Chicken because of its excellent acidity.  Aromas and flavors of lemon/lime zest were prominent with undertones of baked apple pie, almonds and earth.  Crisp, refreshing and beautifully balanced, with a juicy mouthfeel that beckoned for more with each bite of grilled chicken.  It was pure bliss.
