Bottle Description

TD-9 represents an evolution of Shafer Vineyards Merlot, which has been a cornerstone of their range for 30 years. The full story, evoking the great, American pioneering spirit, which led to the founding of Shafer Vineyards, is attached. From a wine perspective, the naissance of TD-9 was an early morning conversation during the 2015 harvest when Doug Shafer and long-standing winemaker, Elias Fernandez, were discussing the Merlot and other fruit from a cluster of small Shafer vineyards just south of Stags Leap District. "You do realise that we could make a much better wine if we could make a red blend" suggested Elias - referring to the mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec fruit on the property. As anticipated, TD-9 was indeed finer and more complex than previously, whilst retaining the joyous, plush, generous fruit which characterized their varietal Merlot.
