92 Points Robert Parker
A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec and 13% Petit Verdot, the 2007 Heytesbury was matured for 18 months in French oak, 92% new. Possessing a very deep garnet purple color, it's scented of ripe blackberry and crushed blueberries with some graphite, coffee grounds, cedar and a faint whiff of thyme. Big and fruity in the mouth with refreshing medium to high acid and medium to firm tannins, the finish is long. Drink it 2012 to 2019+.

96 Points James Halliday
The bouquet reveals an electric array of black fruits, cedar, olive, violets and dried leaf; its complexity and completeness is revealed on the full-bodied palate, as the layers of fruit give way to fine-grained tannins and precise acidity; the finish is long, succulent and thoroughly mesmerising. Cabernet/Malbec/Petit Verdot. Drink to 2025.
