About This Item

What's in the Number?

1993 Indianapolis 500 Pole Day. A.J. Foyt's attempt to compete in his 36th consecutive Indy 500 ended when he retired from driving Indy cars moments before qualifications began. Prompted by teammate Robby Gordon's crash that morning, Foyt, 58, decided to focus solely on his young driver. It was arranged for Foyt to take a bitter­sweet final lap around the 2.5-mile Brickyard as 200,000 fans saluted him with cheers--and tears. In honor of the Legend s retirement in 1993, we proudly present the Foyt No. 93 dessert wine.

TASTING NOTES
This luscious medium-bodied dessert wine, created in a classic port-style is a wonderful balance between ruby and tawny ports. Fortified with a grape brandy and aged five years in oak barrels, The Final Lap is smooth with defined fruit flavors of dried black mission fig, cocoa, and a spicy black liquorish finish. Toasty notes of crème brûlée,
and sweet tobacco make it a delicious end to any evening.
