    Vintner and 23-year racecar veteran Randy Lewis, who drove in five Indianapolis 500 competitions, met cyclist Lance Armstrong at the 2001 Tour de France, where—thanks to their shared passions for racing and wine—they formed a bond of friendship. Happily for oenophiles, they also decided to collaborate on a wine. Armstrong chooses the final blend of this 100 percent Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, which is named Cuvée 7 in honor of the athlete’s seven Tour de France victories. The 2006 vintage layers scents of cedar and spicy oak over hints of black currant and dark chocolate. Sold in a three-bottle set.
