90+ Cellars Collector's Series Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District
Lot 150 was originally introduced to celebrate our 150th Lot in 2017. It became one of our most buzzed about wines. Now, four years later, we are excited to release another small allocation of this wine for the most recent vintage.
The winery that produces this wine is one of the oldest, most well-regarded names in Napa's Spring Mountain District. To say we were excited to get a hold of their 2019 estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an understatement.
Full-bodied and dense with rich black currant aromas mixed with more subtle flavors of dark chocolate and savory spice. Enjoy now or cellar away for a special occasion.
Spring Mountain District
Napa Valley’s Spring Mountain District sits high above the valley floor on ridge tops in the Mayacamas mountain range. Cabernet Sauvignon vines grow well here in a shallow mix of sedimentary and volcanic soils mixed with clay. The high elevation lifts the vines above the morning blanket of fog exposing the leaves and bunches to bright summer sunshine. This unique natural growing environment creates small, thick-skinned berries with a high concentration of texture and flavor.
Grape bunches are hand sorted and de-stemmed prior to fermentation. Warm temperatures during the initial phase of fermentation extract ripe fruit flavors and soft tannins from the grape skins. A post fermentation maceration occurs prior to racking and maturation for 12-18 months in french oak barrels.
In 2009, 90+ Cellars founder Kevin Mehra set out on a mission to bring higher quality wine to the market for a better price. He started calling wineries with a history of high ratings to ask if they had wine for sale. Some told him to get lost, but in the end, he found a handful of wineries that liked his concept. The plan was simple: we put their wine behind our label, and sell it for less.
But why would wineries want to do that?
You may recall that the economy wasn’t in the best shape in 2009. Demand for premium and luxury wines had plummeted and inventories were piling up. Rather than discount their wine and erode the value of their brand, we found that wineries were willing to part with a certain percentage of their production for a reduced price.
It was a win/win scenario. Wineries got to sell more wine, and consumers got access to better wine at lower prices.
