In celebration of the Washington Redskins’ 80th Anniversary, Redskins fans will be able to commemorate the team’s rich history and strong traditions with the launch of a limited release 2011 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

The limited edition commemorative wine was created by internationally acclaimed winemaker Nick Goldschmidt of Goldschmidt Vineyards and marketing agency Wine by Design to celebrate the Redskins’ milestone year.

The special lot of Alexander Valley California fruit produces wines of rich, concentrated flavors that showcase the true character of the region, the vineyard and the varietal. This Reserve blend cabernet is a combination of fresh fruit and sweet oak, with rich tannins on the finish.

“I’m honored to produce a wine for such a historic occasion,” said winemaker Nick Goldschmidt. “For years, the Alexander Valley has been recognized for its tradition of producing rich Cabernets, so it’s fitting for the Redskins’ to release a wine with a deep heritage equal to their own.”

The Reserve blend is available in suites and at select locations at FedExField on game days. This limited release will also be featured at the following Ruth’s Chris SteakhouseRedskins 80th Anniversary Wine Dinners:

    I bought the 80th Anniversary Cabernet.. and now i have 4 redskins sign it at the Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse event at Tysons Corner, VA. Kerrigan, Hankerson, Getta, Robinson. This wine will never be opened and will always increase in value as the Skins and this cabernet will both get better with time.
