Wine Review: 90+ Cellars Lot 49 Sparkling Rosé


90+ Cellars Sparkling Rosé

To learn about how 90+ Cellars finds their wine and everything else you want to know about the Boston based company, read A Brief History of 90+ Cellars!

NOTE: In advance of moving to a new house and the arrival of a new baby, the reviews for March, April and May were all written in February and may be much quicker and to the point than you expect from this blog. Foolishness will return this summer.

This is the wine I'm the most excited about trying from 90+ Cellars this entire month. Sparkling rosé is something that I have a complete adoration for. I actually get excited and cheer "YYYEEEEEEEE!!!" while opening them like a kid on Christmas.

This one is from Trentino, Italy. If you bought it under the source label it would cost $18, but under 90+ it'll cost you $11. Let's go! YYYEEEEEEEE!!!

The color of the wine is salmon sashimi. On the nose there's an overlay of cracking cobblestone and toastiness, and underneath that there's aromas of hard strawberry candy and hard lemon candy. In the mouth it's dry with bright and zesty acidity. There's a ton of minerality on the palate too, and below that there's strawberries, lemon, and orange peel. But the flavor that made me actually speak the word "wow" was rose pedals. Then it finishes with strawberries and rose petals.

Spring is here, guys! This sparkling rosé needs to be in your glass while you're enjoying the warmer weather from your patio.
