This is Social Currency at its classic best. Powerful, seductive and utterly delicious. Tiers of pure fruit with flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cassis framed with an exquisitely refined tannin and a brightness that folds superbly with the power and silky-richness. Super concentrated and fresh with a magnificent core of black fruits, grilled herbs, baking chocolate and mineral. All set on a powerful and plush framework of suave tannins. Exceptional.
What is the greatest “currency” of life? We believe it is our social interactions, often built around meals and great bottles of wine - those times during which we build life-long memories with family and friends.
Crafted from two distinctly different vineyards whose diametrically opposed characters meld into a remarkable whole. From a steep hillside vineyard at the top of Mount Veeder comes classic Cabernet Sauvignon with immense framing tannins and bracing acidity – and from alluvial soils on the valley floor in St. Helena comes Cabernet that is all opulent fruit and texture. Together they are an incredibly refined, powerful and seductive Cabernet blend.
