Shafer's 2019 TD-9 enchants with its enticing aromas of dark cherries, black currants, vibrant boysenberry, hints of tobacco leaf, rich dark chocolate, and a dash of clove. This wine is all about hedonistic elegance, whether you're eager to savor it today or let it mature gracefully of another 10 to 12 years, it will surely overdeliver!. The best part? This cult classic wine can be yours for just $79.99. It's simply irresistible – a must-try!

Who would have guessed that a vintage piece of farm equipment would transform into one of the Stags Leap District's most esteemed wines in Napa Valley? It's a remarkable yet genuine story! Back in 1973, when the Shaffers first set foot in Napa Valley, they transitioned from sharp suits and stylish shoes, (emblematic of Chicago businessmen), to rugged labor in the vineyards. Their daily life shifted to toiling in the vineyards from dawn till dusk, and mastering the operation of an old International Harvester TD-9 crawler tractor became John's new routine. Shafer's TD-9 pays homage to this incredible journey.

Shafer Vineyards is special, they’re Napa Valley royalty and one of the few remaining pioneering families that, up until February of 2021, controlled every aspect of wine production. Not only are they Napa royalty but Robert Parker said Shafer is "One of the World's Greatest Wineries." and he’s right. Shafer’s first Cabernet became a winner at the San Francisco Vintners Club taste-off. A decade later Shafer’s benchmark Cabernet outshined some of Bordeaux’s most prestigious wines including Chateau Margaux, Chateau Latour, and Chateau Palmer. Their accolades are practically endless; "25 Greatest Vineyards in the World," "Winemaker of the Year," "Wine of the Year," they’ve won it all.
