    February 25, 2019 - Dark orange-rouge, full-bodied, apricots and citrus on the nose, unctuous smooth sweetness on the palate -- altogether excellent, but not quite outstanding in my view, because of dominant sugars.

    November 11, 2018 - Drank this with BestJetsFan at a tailgate party. Oh boy! Lip smacking delicious. Everyone loved this. Sorry I didn't take any notes. Wish I had another bottle.

    September 8, 2018 - I enjoyed this bottle a bit more than the last one yesterday, but still doesn't stack up to some of the other vintages.

    September 7, 2018 - Not as mind blowing a vintage as other Mr. K Noble Man I have had, but still a strong showing.

    September 4, 2018 - I would drink this up. The sweetness is starting to dominate with not much acidity to help balance i tout. it still has tremendous flavor but tough to drink more than a glass.
