2016 vintage. Massive. Needs an 8hr/holiday decant. Was drinking great after open 3hrs but needed more airtime.

Saxum is consistently my favorite “big” MSG blend producer from CA. First time trying The Hexe. Absolutely delicious

Just a notch below Third Twin,
Jeb 💯 if I remember correctly. Definitely in a couple years but you won’t be disappointed if you opened one today as well.
Specs

e 2016 Hexe comes mostly from the estate James Berry Vineyard yet has a little bit of G2 fruit as well. Made from lots showing the most structure and power, it tastes like an old vine Grenache from the La Crau lieu-dit in Châteauneuf.
Amazing how
@Stanley Barrios 2017 Grenache matches up so closely with this & the Third Twin.
