90+ Cellars was created by Kevin Mehra because of the fact that he likes drinking great wine. Kevin wanted an everyday drinking wine that tasted like one that wine drinkers usually reserve for special occasions, a delicious wine that could be uncorked any night of the week or whenever friends arrived at his home. Unfortunately, that wine didn’t exist. Either they were extremely expensive or just took way too much time to locate.

In the spring of 2009, Kevin had a copy of the latest Wine Spectator Magazine. He took the time to call and email wineries with a trend of high ratings and asked if they had extra wine for sale. Some wineries told Kevin to get lost and others simply did not give him the time of day. In the end, and after countless tiring hours, he found a handful of willing wineries. The plan was very straight forward… They agreed to put the 90+ Cellars label on their wine, and Kevin would sell it at a fraction of the original price.

You may remember that in 2009, the world economy was in dire straits. Wines priced more than $20 a bottle took a hard hit, and inventory levels at wineries were piling up. Rather than discount their wines and destroy their brand, wineries were willing to part with it for less. Kevin expeditiously paid them and promised complete anonymity on his part.

It was in the summer of 2009 that 90+ Cellars was born in Boston Massachusetts. Since then, it’s been their priority to procure, bottle and deliver fine wine that costs the consumer much less. The world-wide wine market has since changed, but 90+’s mission has not. Kevin and his team partner with highly respected wineries around the globe to provide you with wine that will keep more money in your wallet and really impress your friends. Truly a win-win situation I would say.

On the tasting table today is the 90+ Big Red Blend from Santa Barbara County California. This wine is a true example of how a great quality wine can cost much less… On first appearance, this red blend has a beautiful dark purple color with ruby rim and long, slender legs showing signs of a higher degree of alcohol. Notes in the 90+ Big Red Blend are of ripe berries, black currants and blackberries. For the earthy components this wine has lovely aromas of sweet tobacco, dry dark soil and some vanilla bean baking spice. There is a lingering subtle “burn” as the wine passes the back palate and the finish is long and luscious. I am usually skeptical about a blend with too many varietals in the wine because many are so off balance. With 55% Merlot, 27% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cab. Franc, 2% Petite Syrah, 1% Petite Verdot and 1% Malbec, this red blend is anything but off balance. Alcohol level is of a 14.5%. This is another true example of how the guys of 90+ Cellars procure great wine selections… For only $13.99 this Big Red Blend is a true winner! Give it a try… Ninety Plusninety plus
