Robert Parker 87
"The 2005 Zinfandel North Coast is a blend of 78% Zinfandel, 15% Carignan, and the rest Petite Sirah. It exhibits ripe, earthy, herbal and berry fruit aromas interwoven with notions of sandalwood and black cherries. This soft, fruity, delicious effort can be drunk over the next 2-3 years. The ever reliable Kent Rosenblum continues to turn out a portfolio of delicious Zinfandels. Along with Napa’s Biale family and a short list of other North Coast producers, Rosenblum Cellars is as good as it gets when it comes to Zinfandel. "
