90+ Cellars, among of the fastest growing wine companies in the U.S., has announced a limited-release wine to mark the brand’s 150th lot.
Launched in 2009 under the Latitude Beverage Company umbrella, 90+ Cellars curates wines from vineyards and wineries around the world, and bottles them under its own labels for reduced prices.
Lot 150 is a cabernet sauvignon from the Spring Mountain District in Napa Valley, California. The wine sells for nearly $80 under the source label, the company says, whereas 90+ Cellars is offering the wine for a suggested retail price of $40 per 750-ml. bottle. These savings come from cost efficiencies created by 90+ Cellars’ business model, which allows wineries to sell premium oversupply to consumers at lower prices while maintaining anonymity.
90+ Cellars Lot 150 is predominantly cabernet sauvignon, with cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot. The wine saw 22 months of oak aging in French oak before bottling. This Napa cab is full-bodied and dense, the company reports, with rich black currant and dark chocolate aromas mixed with notes of mint, anise and savory spice.
The wine is available for a limited time in retail locations in the 15 states where 90+ Cellars wines are sold. It’s also available for purchase online with direct shipping to more than 30 states nationwide.
