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.

“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” 
— Shafer winemaker Elias Fernandez

“Powerful and finely textured, with concentrated dried cherry, dark currant and roasted plum flavors that are filled with lively minerality. Richly spiced, showing dried herbal notes on the chiseled finish.”
— Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator

“Rich and concentrated, it’s delightfully robust and vibrant, offering a mix of blackberry, blueberry and caramel chocolate flavors that finish in soft, integrated oak. Editors’ Choice.”
— Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast

“… reveals notes of warm plums, Christmas cake and mocha with hints of sandalwood and vanilla pod. Full-bodied and laden with spiced plum preserves flavors, it has just enough freshness and great length.”
— Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

“… a perfumed, seamless, even elegant, 2015 that gives up lots of blue fruits, spice-box, dried flowers, and incense aromas and flavors. Charming, light on its feet, and with the forward, sexy fruit of this great vintage.”
— Jeb Dunnuck,

“… richly layered with complex aromas of red and black fruits, an inviting floral note, heaps of wood spice, and soft, supple tannins that indicate you could drink it now even if you shouldn’t. This beautiful addition to the Shafer lineup will be better with another five to seven years in the cellar.”
— Robert Whitley,

“… attractive, forward, intense, spicy, strawberry and black fruit aroma with hints of olive and dried herbs; full body; forward, rich, ripe, nicely balanced, red and black fruit flavors with a hint of vanilla and plummy richness in the velvety mouthfeel … very highly recommended.”
California Grapevine

“A pretty wine with blueberry and blackberry. Hints of flowers and stone. Medium to full body, round and juicy.”
— James Suckling,

“… concentrated and powerful while remaining approachable and balanced.”
— Hayley Hamilton Cogill, D Magazine
