"In her travels to find a California wine that would over-deliver for its price, Lia Tolaini-Banville met with countless winemakers & tasted through a lot of uninspiring wine so that you wouldn't have to. Eventually she met with a winemaker who had deep ties to the Napa, Sonoma & Lodi growers he works with every day, & who allow him to hand select fruit in their vineyards every vintage. His understanding of those terroirs & the results that can be produced in blending them resulted in a fragrant wine with depth, balance & complexity. For the label, Lia chose to use the whimsical piece "The Golden Bridge" by artist Francis Kirk. The Trip Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100% Lodi fruit. The wine saw 20 months in new & once-used French & Hungarian oak (Treuil, Trust, Radoux, & Saury cooperages). A classic style California Cabernet- with an emphasis on cassis & blackberry aromas. The relatively low alcohol level keeps everything in balance while the juicy fruit flavors carry through on the palate with firm, ripe tannins"--Importer
