Lavish aromas of black currant, mocha, and savory herbs with trailing notes of tobacco leaf and vanilla. Full and well-rounded with soft edges and a lively dose of bright cherry fruit that unfolds into a smooth finish. This wine is built to last, but perfectly good to pop open tonight.
This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown primarily on the east side of the Napa Valley. The vineyards in this area benefit from cool mornings and late afternoon sunshine. The soil composition and vineyard slope allows for smaller berries with more concentrated color and ripe flavors.
Bunches are de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel. During fermentation the juice is pumped over the skin daily to extract color and flavor from the grape skins. A post fermentation maceration on the skins last for a few weeks before the wine is racked and matured in smaller barrels or vats. After 12 months the wine is bottled.
90+ Ninety Plus CellarsView all from 90+ Ninety Plus Cellars
90+ Cellars was created because we like drinking great wine anytime we want. We wanted an everyday "go to" wine that tasted like one usually reserved for special occasions, a delicious wine that we could open any night of the week or whenever friends arrived. Unfortunately, that wine didn't exist or just took too much time to find.
So, in the spring of 2009, armed with a copy of the latest Wine Spectator, Kevin called and emailed wineries with a history of high ratings and asked if they had wine for sale. Some told him to get lost, others simply ignored him, but in the end, he found a handful of willing wineries. The plan was this: They put the 90+ Cellars label on their wine, and we sell it for less.
You may recall that the economy wasn't in the best shape in 2009. Demand for wines priced more than $20 a bottle plummeted and inventories were piling up. Rather than discount their wine and erode the value of their brand, wineries were willing to part with it for a reduced price.
That summer 90+ Cellars was born. Since then, it's been our goal to seek out, bottle and deliver fine wine that costs you less money. The landscape has changed, but our mission has not. We partner with highly respected wineries around the globe to provide you with wine that will impress your friends and keep more dollars in your pocket.
Saturday night taste. Tuesday night price.
That's 90+ Cellars.
