The Redskins have an 80th anniversary wine

August 13, 2012

“Since 1932, Redskins fans have established themselves as the greatest fans in the history of the game,” reads the official Redskins Reserve page on the team’s Web site. “To honor their loyalty, this limited-edition 2011 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has been created by internationally acclaimed winemaker, Nick Goldschmidt. An exceptional wine commemorating 80 years of passion and commitment, Redskins Reserve is a winning combination of elegance, style and texture, with fresh fruits and sweet oak, providing great structure with supple, sweet tannins on the finish. It’s the perfect wine to be savored every time the Burgundy and Gold take the field.”

The winery in question is located an hour north of San Francisco in Sonoma County. The team’s Web site says that Redskins Reserve will be available at select retailers this fall.
