When the Nationals won the World Series last year, my wife and I were given a bottle of wine shown below commemorating the win. We decided not to drink it until the Nationals had won their first game this season, so we drank it last night. Considering that Major League Baseball gets paid for the license, that the bottle is hand-etched and hand-painted, and that the whole concept is basically much like a tourist trap, we had low expectations for the quality of the wine despite its $50 price tag. We were really surprised how good it was! Though better wines can be found for the same price, this was far better than the everyday wines we drink and was not a ripoff in our mind. Blend of Cab and Merlot. 14% alcohol.
