    Very nice bottle. Very different from the Wellington zins it was tasted with, mainly because of the somewhat funky nose. More complex. Still has strong tannins and a long finish. Would be really interesting to see how this is after some more time. 90-91

The Ridge was the favorite by a significant margin, though one wonders whether this would have occurred if the tasting were blind. The Wellingtons were, from most to least favorite, 2007, 2005, 2004, 2006.
