Wells Wilder Casten is the youngest of our family’s 6th generation. Her name is derived from the Wellington boot, first commissioned by the Duke of Wellington in 1815. A nod to our farming heritage, wellies are a hallmark of country life, both hardy and elegant. Fittingly our Welly has a singular love of gumboots and tutus, a teeny stardust in the vineyard and on the street. Like its spirited namesake, our Welly Cabernet Sauvignon is unabashedly expressive and pure. This wine is our tribute to her, and to our family’s 140 years of turning dirt into liquid splendor.
“2019 was a fabulous vintage in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, produce excellent wines full of character and pizazz. The long and moderate growing season allowed for the flavors to develop slowly and precisely. Deep garnet with purple edges, Welly Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 has enticing aromas of ripe plum, blackberry puree, anise, forest floor and toasted coconut. Flavors pile on, adding briary black raspberry, olallieberry, boysenberry, and fresh cedar. There are fine and creamy tannins that lay forth a silky, seamless, luxurious and rich finish. This wine is the total package: a linebacker in a tutu.”
