Succulent and racy in style.

  •   2017

Touted as "one of the world's greatest wineries" by Robert Parker, Shafer's main focus has been on there luxuriant, richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon from their Stags Leap Vineyard, however father and son John and Doug Shafer also produce exceptional wines throughout Napa Valley and Carneros.

"The 2017 TD-9 is juicy, expressive and pliant, with soft edges that seem to push the fruit forward. Succulent and racy in style, the 2017 should drink well right out of the gate. Stylistically, the 2017 is a bit more lush and overt than the 2016 tasted alongside it. The blend is 63% Merlot, 22% Malbec and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon." 90-93/100, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Moving to the reds, the 2017 TD-9 Proprietary Red Blend is mostly Merlot yet includes 22% Malbec and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple-hued with sweet aromas of jammy blackberries, spiced cherries, herbes de Provence, and dried flowers, it is a wonderfully textured, medium to full-bodied, balanced red with sweet tannins and a great finish. It’s going to evolve nicely for 10-12 years." 92/100, Jeb Dunnuck

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).
