Details

The unveiling of a brand new wine from a prestigious producer such as Shafer is truly a Major Event, and this TD-9 Napa Valley proprietary blend is worthy of the fanfare it has – and will be – receiving. The name TD-9 pays homage to founder John Shafer’s re-orienting his life back in 1973, when in the space of a few months he went from riding morning commuter trains in Chicago to teaching himself how to drive a TD-9 tractor in his recently-acquired Napa Valley vineyard.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine Spectator - “Vibrant, complex aromas of ripe red and black fruit, lavender, and herbs fill the glass followed by pure, energetic flavors of dried cherry, blackberry, strawberry, licorice, and cocoa all pulled together with wet slate minerality, clean acidity, and the ripe, seamless tannins that are the hallmarks of this vintage. 56% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec.”
