2019 Shafer 'TD9' Bordeaux Blend
TD-9 is a proprietary blend that celebrates a bold move. In 1973, in the space of a few months, John Shafer went from riding morning commuter trains in Chicago to teaching himself to drive a TD-9 tractor in our Napa Valley vineyard. He’d never grown grapes or made wine in his life. That spirit of risk-taking and adventure still guides Shafer today and inspired the creation of this new wine.
This vintage ofTD-9, with more than 50 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, fills the glass with vivid
aromas and flavors of summer berries, black tea, rose petal, lavender, and black cherry. All this
juicy radiance is knit together with ripe Napa Valley tannins, offering abundant enjoyment
today while promising even more beauty with time in your cellar.” — Shafer winemaker Elias Fernandez
