2016 Paxis Red Blend
Appellation: Lisboa, Portugal
2016 Paxis Red Blend is coined an escape from the stresses in the world! The name is derived from a children’s game called Bulldog where kids call out “Paxis” to declare immunity from being caught! Escape your stresses and appreciate excellent wine with Paxis! Not only is it an escape but it also has the structure to be your best Texas BBQ companion. This dark, structured wine, consists of a balanced blend of Portugal’s best varieties used to make Ports, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, along with Portugal’s version of Tempranillo grapes, Tinta Roriz. Paxis Red Blend holds aromas of cherry, subtle cedar, and dried tobacco. It is firm with tannins and dense berry fruits like ripe strawberry. Full in the mouth, it is concentrated wine that brings out a strongly chalky texture.
