The year 1967 was a landmark one for A.J. Foyt who won his third Indianapolis 500 and his first 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race (co-drove with Dan Gurney). Foyt remains the only driver to win these world-renowned races in the same year.
Dubbed "Super Tex", the image on the label is from an original oil panting by world renowned motorsport artist, Colin Carter. Bottled in 2017, this Mount Veeder Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon celebrates the 50th anniversary of A.J.’s historic victories. Let its bold style call to mind the boldness of the man whose achievements we honor.
