Encryption is the conversion of a message from readable form into a mysterious puzzle, with the key to unlocking mystery shared only by a select few. Onyx developed a minimal, modern and timeless icon wine that contains a secret red blend. Encryptions on the front and back of the bottle give clues to the luscious new California red blend. The Cryptic wheel was inspired by a 16th century cipher wheel brilliantly beautiful and mysterious. Concept and design created entirely by Onyx Design Inc. with Swig Studio, San Francisco, California.
The cryptic wheel is a combination of gold screen printing and 18 carat gold metallic finish to convey the uniqueness and elegance of the mysterious blend.
