90+ Cellars Wines:
Dry Rose, Lot 33 ($9.99)
Fruit forward and crisp; especially good for those who are new to dry roses.
Prosecco Brut Lot 50 ($10.99)
Dry and lightly fruity; great on its own or in wine cocktails; this is the go-to for Mimosas.
Pinot Grigio Lot 42 ($9.99/750 $18.99/1.5L)
Crisp, bright, with a slight floral undertone; this is my favorite value Pinot Grigio
Sauvignon Blanc Lot 2 ($9.99/750 $18.99/1.5L)
Marlborough, New Zealand
Citrus and herbal notes are nicely balanced with good minerality; not as acidic as some Sauv Blancs from the same region, but very crisp.
Shiraz Lot 37 ($9.99)
McLaren Vale, Australia
Spicy dark fruit with a smooth body; full bodied and round.

What 90+ Cellars does:
"It all started in the spring of 2009. Armed with a copy of the latest Wine Spectator, 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 extra 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 in our bottle, 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 wines priced more than $20 a bottle 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.
The landscape has changed quite a bit since we launched; but our mission and our ability to offer great wine for a great price has not. With our Wine Director, Brett Vankoski, at the helm we continue to seek out the best opportunities in the market and turn those into great values in the bottle for you. We do this because we love great wine, and we know you do too."
