Shafer TD9, Napa Valley 2018
62% Merlot, 22% Malbec, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon
From the prestigious Shafer Vineyards, this wine is deep purple-hued and singing with sweet aromas of jammy blackberries, spiced cherries, herbes de Provence, and dried flowers, it is a wonderfully textured, medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins and an indulgent finish. Drink now or keep it locked up somewhere cool for a few years.
Grapes are sourced from the Stags Leap District, Yountville, and a vineyard in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains just south of Stags Leap District. The growing season was great thanks to a lengthy, cool, steady summer season which created ideal conditions for the fruit to hang on the vine for a long time helping the grapes to develop bold colour and great concentration.
It goes through 20 months of aging in 60-gallon French oak barrels (100% new: Allier and Troncais)
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 and all of his wines.
