PAXIS BULLDOG RED BLEND 2012 Our March 2016 Wine of the Month. This grabs attention quickly, with a dark color and potent jam and brown sugar aromas. Next come dazzling strawberry syrup flavors backed by thick tannins and good acidity. The texture is astringent and tight, but the flavors are so full that they meet the tannins half way. Best now through 2019. Source: Wine Enthusiast Magazine. 2012 Vintage.
