Seghesio Family Vineyards

2016 Defiant
2016 Defiant

This distinctive blend is tribute to the history and strength of the Seghesio Family. At the winery’s centennial celebration in 1995, wine industry icon Mario Perelli-Minetti toasted founding matriarch, Angela Seghesio, and the “defiant” attitude with which she faced the industry’s challenges. With the Seghesio family’s conviction and determination, the winery survived prohibition and has been making wine continuously since 1895.

Tasting Notes
Violets, elderberry and baking spices provide a warm welcome and guide you through a more diverse and complex mid-palate. A finish filled with brambly blackberries subtly reveals an exotic undertone of licorice and cocoa.
Food Pairing Notes
Braised short ribs or Beef Bourguignon would be a perfect match for this bold wine. Aged goat cheeses would be a delightful match.

Sonoma County Vineyards

This wine comes from the old head-pruned vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek valleys farmed by the multi-generational Passalacqua and Saini families for Seghesio. The older vines devigorized root system produces less, yet more intense, fruit highlighting Zinfandel's briary spice characteristic.
