I don't need to tell you how happy I was with the inaugural release of this wine, the 2016. We never had a new wine get the magic triple digit score except for that one. We are super proud of it....As for the 2017 version? It's a perfect follow up. Maybe not as structured as the '16 version, but definitely more open and approachable, which I really enjoy. It is a blast of dark fruits and spicy herbs on the nose and in the mouth it is pure sexiness. Long smooth tannins and complexity that goes for days. Please do not miss out on this wine. Really, it's sexy. Drink this wine.

Built around old, head-trained vines right outside the winery and 58% Grenache, 27% Mataro, 11% Petite Sirah, and the rest Tempranillo, the 2017 Hexe is another gorgeous, sexy 2017 that's a joy to drink. Offering loads of blackberries, chocolate, white pepper, black licorice, and bouquet garni-like aromas and flavors, it's full-bodied, ultra-pure, seamless, and gorgeously put together. Drink this stunning wine over the coming 10-15 years.

The 2017 The Hexe is a blend of 58% Grenache, 27% Mataro, 11% Petite Sirah and 4% Tempranillo. It has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and scents of jammy blue and black fruits with touches of fruitcake and sweet spices. The palate bursts with sweet berry fruits, supported by a fine tannic grain and good freshness, finishing very long and spicy.
