Nice amber color, very sweet, dried fruits, honey, carmalized brown sugar and a faint nuttiness. I really enjoyed this, I think the only thing missing for me was the acidity, some nice acid would have put this over the top.
This is only the second Noble Man I have tasted, and I am very impressed with Sine Qua Non's effort with dessert wines. This is made from Chardonnay and definitely worth seeking out! Golden color with nice, thick and long legs! Nose was honeys with stone fruits and hints of nutmeg and petrol. On the palate, it was excellent! The palate was wowed with the taste of honey, creme brulee, dried apricot, peach, orange and lemon, with a hint of vanilla, caramel and butterscotch. It was perfect combination/balance of sweetness and acidity. For me, this would have been WOTN (except it was a Pinot tasting!) However, it was my highest scoring wine of the night!
Blind Pinot's (The Kenwood): Maple syrup in color. Thick texture. Burnt sugar, toffee, marmalade, spice. Definitely a dessert wine. Compared to the 2006, this one seemed to have more acid, which made it more balanced.
