From the winery:
This bottling of Zinfandel is from one of our favorite Lake County Zinfandel vineyards. The Duncan-Shine vineyard contains some of the oldest plantings of Zinfandel in all of Lake County going back to the late 1800s. The block we source our fruit from was planted in 1980. The Duncan-Shine vineyard produces a Zinfandel that shows both the fresh juicy fruit and more ripe character of the variety.
All the fruit is hand harvested and quickly delivered to the winery. The grapes are de-stemmed and gently crushed to tanks for fermentation. Following fermentation, we pressed and racked the individual vineyard lots to American and French oak barrels for 8 months. Based on our stylistic approach to Shooting Star wines, this Zin is lighter and fruitier than our Old-Vine Steele Zinfandels. Spice, tobacco, and cocoa are also characteristics of this bottling. We used approximately 80% neutral barrels and 20% new barrels to capture as much of the aroma and flavor of the grape as possible.
Try our Shooting Star Zinfandel with pasta in marinara sauce, calzones, grilled meat, or lasagna. The Shooting Star Zinfandel is also a delicious wine with BBQ.
Produced and Bottled by Shannon Family of Wines
The 2020 Steele Shooting Star Zinfandel opens with very pleasing aromas of brambly dark fruit plus nice touches of spice, licorice, vanilla and cola. It's a great start.
The wine tastes silky smooth and is very easy to drink with continued touches of spice throughout. With plenty of ripe fruit and good acidity, this is a great all around Zin. It's just a pleasure to drink.
It ends dry and long. Stock up!
