The 2019 Red Blend TD-9 is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 11% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet purple in color, tantalizing notes of mocha, tapenade and truffles spring from the glass, supported by a core of cassis and stewed plums. Full, juicy and soft on the palate, with a lively line and a wonderfully pure, fruity aftertaste.

FACT: TD-9 is a proprietary blend that celebrates a bold move. In 1973, in the space of a few months, John Shafer taught himself to drive a TD-9 tractor in the vineyard in Napa Valley. He had never grown grapes or made wine in his life. The spirit of risk-taking and adventure still guides Shafer and inspires every vintage of this wine.

ABOUT SHAFER VINEYARDS

Shafer Vineyards was founded in 1972 when, after a successful career in publishing, John Shafer, along with his son Doug, purchased vineyards on the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley. They purchased 84 acres, 12 of which were planted with vines. A program of replanting and replanting was immediately carried out. From their inception, the Shafers have been very innovative. The aim was to arrive at a completely natural way of growing grapes and making wine. By growing clover and peas, which, in addition to preventing erosion, also form a rich humus layer, bees and other insects are attracted that ensure optimal pollination and a natural environment. This prevents the use of pesticides. Winemaker Elias Fernandez has been with Shafer since 1994 and is considered one of the most talented winemakers in Napa.
