This rowdy, spicy red truly captures wildness in a bottle. Pax’s wine reflects the ruggedness of his vineyards which are found on mountainsides or in unexpected soils facing exposure to harsh elements. Design team, Lab Partners, took inspiration from Pax’s natural winemaking process along with the wine itself—lively, floral notes with concentration and depth—to create their wild and whimsical label.
