Mission Briefing

Codename:

Lucky 77

Who knew that driving really really fast would be such good preparation for crafting world class wines? Well, for A.J. Foyt that’s certainly proved the case, as his 2010 No. 77 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is one monstrously delicious Napa Cab.

This incredible and very highly recommended Cabernet Sauvignon hits all the right notes. 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!

Tasting Profile

Look:

A dark, delicious cherry red through and through, just inviting you to take that first sip.

Smell:

Classic Mount Veeder aromatics leap from the glass, highlighted by clear notes of fresh cedar wood and eucalyptus. These aromas are joined by fresh dark blackberry and plum, cassis, dried black cherry, European licorice, freshly tilled earth, and black peppercorn.

Taste:

Deeply layered and concentrated, this is one serious Cab. Velvety black cherry, blackberry, and mulberry mingle with pipe tobacco, cedar wood cigar box, black peppercorn, dark baking spices, cassis, and mocha powder.

Finish:

Best decanted, the rich flavors on today’s wine need some time to open. Once it has opened up, you’ll be greeted by a smooth and silken finish, with a delightful touch of sweet dried cherry that only slowly gives way, leaving you reaching for your next sip.

Pairing:

Filet mignon, grilled to perfection, then served with a mushroom-gorgonzola sauce drizzled overtop.
