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+. 94+

The 2008 Heytesbury, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot, retains a dark garnet color, just beginning to brick at the rim. It also retains its firm tannins, giving it a drying finish even at nine years... The 2008 Heytesbury, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot, retains a dark garnet color, just beginning to brick at the rim. It also retains its firm tannins, giving it a drying finish even at nine years of age. It's medium to full in body with a fine degree of elegance to its notes of cassis, earth, mint and vanilla. Drink it over the next several years. - Joe Czerwinski
