Ninety-Three Eighty-Nine. The final score that cemented a championship that only days prior seemed out of reach. On June 19th, 2016, the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Golden State Warriors 93-89 and become NBA champions for the first time in franchise history. The block. The Shot. And now, the Wine!
We’re celebrating the 5th anniversary of game 7 and the Cavs championship with the release of Ninety-three Eighty-Nine, a red wine blend and the second collaboration between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Nocking Point Wines, The Official Wine of Sports.
We were lucky enough to sit down with four members of the Cavalier broadcast team who shared their own stories from that evening (check out that video below). This wine is the perfect collectors item for every Cavs fan, and it tastes great, too. Cheers to the 2016 World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers!
