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.

“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.”
