Jeb Dunnuck über: Napa TD-9

-- Jeb Dunnuck: An incredible value, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon TD-9 includes slightly more Merlot and is 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 11% Malbec and the rest Petit Verdot. Round, sexy, full-bodied, and opulent, it has terrific aromatics of red and black currants, tobacco, chocolate, and lead pencil shavings. Drink this hedonistic yet balanced, elegant beauty over the coming 10-12 years. 94/100


Suckling über: Napa TD-9

-- Suckling: Aromas of blackberries with old spice, dark cherries and cloves, following through to a medium to full body with a sold core of ripe fruit and a creamy and stony underlying character. Juicy and rich, yet not overbearing. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Drinkable now, but better in 2025. 93/100


Galloni über: Napa TD-9

-- Galloni: The 2019 TD-9 is silky, aromatic and perfumed. Crushed flowers, red berry fruit, spice and rose petal all show a move towards more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Forward and open-knit, the 2019 is an absolute pleasure to taste. Best of all, the 2019 will drink well right out of the gate. 92/100

Shafer Vineyards

Shafer Vinyards im Stags Leap District ist zweifellos eine der amerikanischen Vorzeige-Stories schlechthin. John R. Shafer hing in den frühen 70er Jahren mit 50 seinen alten Bürojob als Marketing-Experte an den Nagel und wollte Wein machen.
