Seductive aromas of violets, blackberry, chocolate, coffee bean and black licorice. Shows Social Currency’s classic textured core and sophisticated framework of lush, fine-grain tannin. Long, complex, powerful and refined with great palate presence and a beautiful, integrated finish that expands with endless dark fruits and mineral notes.
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.
