2018 sees the fourth ever release of Shafer TD-9, a proprietary red blend named after the TD-9 tractor that John Shafer taught himself to drive after taking the adventurous step from the corporate world of Chicago to becoming a winemaker in Napa Valley. TD-9 is fine and complex, offering generous fruit characterised by their varietal Merlot, which the estate has "excelled at turning out gorgeous Merlots that are concentrated and fleshy as well as elegant" - Robert Parker. 2018 Shafer TD-9 is a blend of 56% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Malbec, aged for 20 months in barrel, and it follows the superb trend of these new releases scoring its joint-highest ever score. Jeb Dunnuck awards 93-points and describes it as "another balanced, charming, and impeccably made wine from this estate."

About Shafer

In 1978, the first-ever vintage of the Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon was released and earned a most encouraging 95 points from Robert M. Parker Jr., who called it “a remarkable example of California Cabernet Sauvignon” that “comes across like a Pauillac-styled red”. Today, Shafer Vineyards is managed by Doug Shafer with Elias Fernandez overseeing the winemaking.

An iconic producer of the Stags Leap AVA, Shafer Vineyards has long since been recognized for its outstanding range, in particular the Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of the best fruit from 14 blocks located on the rugged hillside, the first vintage of the Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon earned 95 points from Robert M. Parker Jr., who called it “a remarkable example of California Cabernet Sauvignon” that resembles a “Pauillac-styled red”.
