94 Points Robert Parker

Blended of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec and 15% Petit Verdot and matured in 87% new French oak for 18 months, the 2008 Heytesbury has a deep garnet purple color and intense blackberry, dark cherry and mocha aromas with nuances of tree bark, cinnamon stick and cardamom. Medium to high acid and a medium to firm level of exquisitely fine tannins structure the concentrated, full bodied palate, leading to a very long and layered finish. It should begin to open-out from 2013 and cellar to 2020+.

96 Points James Halliday

Simply called Heytesbury because the percentages of the varieties used changes from year to year (this year 10% malbec, 13% petit verdot and 77% cabernet sauvignon). It is a complex, layered wine that nonetheless retains finesse, its predominantly blackcurrant and plum fruit given texture and structure by outstanding ripe tannins and cedary French oak; exemplary length and balance. Drink to 2028.
