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 his Napa Valley vineyard.

That spirit of risk-taking and adventure still guides Shafer today and inspired the creation of this new wine.Grapes for this 2019 come from Stags Leap District, Yountville, and a vineyard in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains just south of Stags Leap District. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 8% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdotaged 20 months in 60-gallon French oak barrels (100% new: Allier and Tronçais).Jeb Dunnuck scored this 94 points saying “An incredible value.

Drink this hedonistic yet balanced, elegant beauty over the coming 10-12 years.”James Sucklin…
