Tasting Notes

Seductive dark cherry, anise, baking chocolate and mineral aromas. This has a luxurious core of exotic dark fruits flavors layered with cocoa, spice and herb - all carried on a velvet framework supported by silky tannins. Structured and powerful but approachable now – this is a fantastic Social Currency showing its classic combination of opulence and grace.

Social Currency

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 volcanic ash soils from St. Helena’s eastern hills comes Cabernet that is all opulent fruit and texture. Together they are an incredibly refined, powerful and seductive Cabernet blend.
