Winemaker Notes

This special bottling of Mendocino Zinfandel is a combination of our favorite Mendocino Zinfandel vineyards. Lolonis Zinfandel Vineyards were planted around 1980 and the Pacini Vineyard was planted in 1943. Pacini is dry farmed, thus is a low yielding vineyard with concentrated flavors.

Based on our stylistic approach to Shooting Star wines, this Zin is lighter and fruitier than our Old-Vine Steele Zinfandels. We used approximately 80% neutral barrels and 20% new barrels in order 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 meats or lasagna. The Shooting Star Zinfandel is also a delicious wine with BBQ.

Tasting Panel
Silky and richly fruity; toasty and juicy with enduring threads of blackberry. Overseeing this handharvested release, Jed Steele is really a Zin master.
WW 89
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Showing loads of jar-jam character, the rich and enticing 2015 Jed Steele's Shooting Star Zinfandel shows up big time on the palate. The wine's ever-flowing berry flavors pair it nicely with a spicy crispy-skin pork chop. (Tasted: October 6, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
