Deep, amber-tinted gold. Wild, idiosyncratic aromas of apricot marmalade, toffeed orange, red licorice, sweet butter and toasted coconut. Rich, deep and quite sweet in orchard and citrus flavours, with lower-toned notes of caramel and mocha adding power. Finishes with lingering sweet notes of toffeed pear and apple. 92 Points; Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (USA), July/August 2006

It certainly bears a strong resemblance to the PX wines of the Jerez region of Spain. The bouquet carries treacle and toffee notes, with hints of Christmas cake, and the sweetness of the palate is balanced by lifted acidity. Highly Recommended; WINEWISE, Vol 22 No 2, June 2006

A nose reminiscent of herbs, aged almond oil and muscat grapes. Great toffee/coffee palate. Big and sweet with excellent oak. Best Wines of 2005, Winestate, Annual 2006, Vol. 29, Issue 1

A dark viscous and hugely concentrated wine that displays a complex array of flavours ... accompanied by complex aged characters from oak maturation in small barrels for an average of eight years. The wine was inspired by a wine made by Vittorio De Bortoli in the 1930s thought by the family to be botrytised Pedro Ximinez. The base wine for Black Noble come from a 1972 material which was a very early attempt to make a Sauternes style. Black Noble has a rich toffee colour with hints of amber and coffee anise and toffee aromas evident on the nose. QHA Review, August 2005

Has hints of toffee, rum and raisin together with very complex barrel age characteristics. A fascinatingly different fortified style. Winewise, June 2005
