The name references John Shafer’s early days as a Napa pioneer who, in the space of a few months in 1973, went from riding morning commuter trains in Chicago to teaching himself to drive an ancient tractor (a TD-9) left behind in his vineyard property’s drive shed.

Elias selected fruit from Shafer’s hillside vineyards in Stags Leap District and Yountville, as well as from a vineyard in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains just south of Stags Leap. TD-9 is an opportunity to take the best fruit from these vineyards each year to create the most compelling wine the vintage can offer.

“This has a meaty nose with grilled plums, smoke, tapenade and dried leaves. Some tomato paste. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Broad and flavorful with a distinctively savory, saline finish. 56% merlot, 23% cabernet sauvignon and 21% malbec. Better from 2021.”
93 points, JamesSuckling.com, Dec 2020

“Tasted from barrel, 2018 TD-9 is a pliant, creamy and beautifully textured wine done in the classic Shafer style. Sweet red cherry, red plum, cedar and sweet spice all meld together in this super-expressive, radiant wine. In 2018, the blend is 58% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Malbec.”
