JET SET JUNGLE

2014 Syrah / Mouvédre, Sonoma County

production: 8 barrels made

$32per bottle


This unruly red truly captures Pax’s experimental spirit. Jet Set Jungle is crazy aromatic and smells of blackberries, blueberries, pomegranate, and lingonberries. Despite the juicy, fruit-filled, and candied nose, the palate is crisply acidic, and it’s a red that’s intended to be served lightly chilled. Illustrator, Meg Hunt, captured the verve of this wine with her untamed, barbarous representation of ‘wildness bottled’. Scroll down for even more details.

About the Design
This wine feels like an abundant harvest, full of unique and rich possibilities. In that way, I designed my label to be a surprise-- part leopard, part tiger, and full of energy bursting out of the bottle!
