Today’s wine comes from one of the most prestigious winemaking families in Napa Valley. Here is the 94-point 2019 Shafer Vineyards TD-9 from Napa Valley. Jeb Dunnuck called it “round, sexy, full-bodied, and opulent” while Antonio Galloni said it’s “an absolute pleasure to taste.” If you love full-bodied reds, this Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend is right for you!
Shafer’s 2019 TD-9 has enchanting and terrific aromas of dark cherries, black currants, fresh boysenberry, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate, and clove. This is a hedonistic and elegant wine ready to showcase its beauty today or gracefully evolve into a silky pleasure over the next 10 to 12 years. Best of all, you can have this sexy wine for only $64.95. It's too tempting not to try!
Who knew that an heirloom piece of old farm equipment would become one of the most prestigious wine bottlings in Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District? Incredible but true! When the Shaffers arrived in Napa Valley in 1973, they went from wearing tailored suits and elegant shoes, typical of a Chicago businessman, to rough work in the vineyard. Vineyard work from sunrise to sunset would become their new lifestyle, and learning how to drive an old International Harvester TD-9 crawler tractor would become Jonh’s new routine.
Shafer Vineyards is special, they’re Napa Valley royalty and one of the few remaining pioneering families that, up until February of this year, 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. Here’s your opportunity to taste Napa Valley excellence.
Shafer’s 2019 TD-9 is a unique blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and produced by one of the world’s greatest wineries. Shafer cultivates grapes from five different vineyards, including the famous Hillside Estate, to produce this "juicy and rich" wine. Discover the aromas of Jeb Dunnuck's 94-point wine that he called an "incredible value."
