2016 Saxum "Hexe" Paso Robles Red Blend (1.5L)

SKU #1467934 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A perfect wine, the 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 du Pape with its huge bouquet of black raspberries, cassis, garrigue, ground pepper, and melted licorice. Full-bodied, ripe, and sexy on the palate, with awesome concentration. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, glistening magenta. A hugely fragrant bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, exotic flowers, licorice and incense, and a smoky mineral overtone builds in the glass. Juicy, deeply concentrated and seamless in texture, offering alluringly sweet, palate-coating creme de cassis, cherry-cola, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that spread out smoothly on the back half. Closes supple, sweet and incredibly long, with gently building tannins adding shape and subtle grip. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Hexe is a blend of 56% Grenache, 13% Petite Sirah, 10% Syrah, 9% Mataro, 7% Zinfandel and 5% Tempranillo aged 31 months in various vessels, including 66% new oak and 17% amphorae. Deep ruby in color, it gives aromas of blackberry preserves, baked marionberries, black cherries and red berries with accents of dried citrus peel, dried flowers, charcuterie and an earthy undercurrent. Medium to full-bodied, intense and still tightly wound, it has a firm, lightly chewy frame and well-woven freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
