Meet the Massachusetts brand 90+ Cellars, which has recently introduced six wines to create the perfect Holiday Wine Essential gift to help get you in the holiday spirit. Whether you are in the mood for a light sparkling Prosecco or a dark Cabernet Sauvignon, they have something for everyone’s palette.
The brand is a limited collection of wine sourced from elite vineyards all over the world with a history of producing wines with 90-point ratings, gold medals, and best buy awards. The team then selects the best of the best for the 90+ Cellars label, and offers them at a reduced price you can now enjoy great wine anytime (most are under $20).
When the economy took a turn for the worst in 2009, demand for higher priced wines priced took a hard fall, and inventories were piling up. Rather than discount their wine and cheapen their brand, wineries were willing to part with it for less. 90+ Cellars came in and paid these wineries to turn around fine wine at reduced prices.
We love the Lot 72 Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, California, 2010, aged for more than a year in French and American oak before the final blend is assembled. The result? A rich blend of black currants and blackberries that round out a well balanced taste and aroma perfectly paired up with a grilled New York sirloin to bring out all of the flavors.
