Axios Wine has decided to join Heavy Seas and Old Bay in creating a product to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Cal Ripken, Jr. breaking Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games played streak. The wine is called “2131” and it’s a 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Axios Wine owner Gus Kalaris is a board member on the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and one-third of the wine’s proceeds will go to the organization. Here’s the Washington Post with more details:

Kalaris Family Vineyards, one of Axios’s brands, will produce 2,131 numbered bottles of 2131. They will be sold in wood-and-glass cases for $300. One hundred cases will also include a Hall of Fame baseball signed by Ripken and retail for $500. The official release date is Nov. 1, but pre-orders are being accepted now.

$300 is wayyyy too rich for my blood. Do you know how many boxes of Franzia that could buy? But as a broke-ass, mid-20’s blogger, I’m clearly not the demographic that they’re gunning for. If I’m going to shell out big money to celebrate this occasion, it’s going to be on a 2131 crab cake mold. Any company that figures out the science to manufacture that would make a goddamn fortune.
