Seghesio 2016 Defiant Red (Sonoma County)
This is a creative, compelling combination of 44% Zinfandel with 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah, 10% Petite Sirah and 4% Alicante Bouschet, aged in both new and neutral French and American oak. Juicy red fruit shines alongside a tension of oak and tannin. The palate is grippy and lengthy in blueberry and leather. Virginie Boone

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
