Foyt Family Wines
2009 No. 77 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder
California: Napa Valley: Mt. Veeder
Who knew that race car driver A.J. Foyt could craft such a remarkable wine? This incredible and very highly recommended Cabernet Sauvignon hits all the right notes. It is a true Cabernet lover’s wine.
Beautifully aromatic on the nose, with layer upon layer of fruit, spice and earth that waft from the glass. On the palate, the flavors echo the nose almost perfectly. As you enjoy this wine, flavors accumulate in the mouth, seemingly increasing with each lush sip.
Decant, and the wine really springs to life, bringing lift to the fruit and adding elegance on the palate. Especially on the long and lingering finish.
There aren’t many cases of this wine left, so please be sure to order early. And stock up!

Deep and slightly inky, with dark garnet hues at the heart and ruby red at the glass wall.
Perfectly integrated, with layers of superb, lush aromas led by stewed berry fruit, plum, black cherry, cassis and fresh blackberry. Aromas of leather, sweet spice and twigs follow on.
Powerful and delicious with layer upon layer of fruit. Blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, plum and a hint of nutmeg lead to dried violets, cassis and dark bramble.
Long, lingering and mouth-watering, with concentrated berry fruit and dark spice that seem to go on forever.
Roasted leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary or a juicy steak would be a delightful accompaniment to this rich and delicious wine.
