Dave Broom

75
Nose
Big, fat and wine like. Sweet and jammy with hot raspberry jelly alongside dry roast peanut, (over) cooked apple and cinnamon.
Palate
Sweet red fruits. Hint of sloe-scented sweetness. Fresh, but as fat as you like in the middle, then comes the cereal.
Finish
Falls away on the back palate.
Comment
A touch slick and a little one-dimensional.

Gavin Smith

80
Nose
Wine gums and wet garden undergrowth.
Palate
Bright and fruity, a fresh, lively mouthfeel.
Finish
Drying steadily with vanilla and rye.
Comment
Attractive and eminently quaffable.
