"I was blown away by the 2003 Heytesbury Red Blend, a combination of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Shiraz, and 9% Malbec aged 18 months in three-quarters French and one-quarter American oak. One of the finest reds I have tasted from Western Australia, it reveals a deep purple color in addition to a beautiful perfume of camphor, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, cedar, smoke, and background barbecue spices. Dense, rich, and full as well as elegant, pure, and sensationally well-balanced, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12+ years."
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #168 (Dec 2006).

"A deep, powerful, rather closed and brooding wine whose layers of flavour and texture should come together in time. Assertive dark chocolate and vanilla oak slightly overshadows its restrained aromas of blackberry, dark plum and dark cherry fruit, while nuances of rosemary and violets slowly emerge. Sumptuous, dark-fruited and intensely flavoured, it's still coming to grips with its powerful oak and very firm and slightly awkward malbec-driven extract. Drink 2015-2023."
