It's okay. One point five is better, so I don't know why they decided to make this wine. Different strokes,....

Shafer TD-9 2015. This is a blend of merlot, cabernet, and malbec (56/28/16) and I love it! This is big and jammy like a good merlot should be. The color is moderately dark. The bouquet is blueberry preserves. The initial palate is black currant and blackberries ripe off the vine. The mid palate is oaky slowly opening into a vanilla and buttery dry finish. Just delicious!!!! A bit pricy at 65 dollars a bottle, but Ill buy it again hands down. This is a fantastic bottle of wine. If I could afford it Id buy a case.

This wine opens beautifully. First impression on the nose, powerful intensity rich round dark red fruit - I get sour cherry enveloped in dark chocolate. On the palate, smooth balanced bright red fruit expertly softened to a rounded, reined-in dark intensity. Warm full finish.

Medium nose, slightly closed, with notes of cherries, black currant, green herbs and bitter chocolate. Medium to fullbodied with young vibrant tannins, fresh acidity and long aromatic finnish. Improves with one hour decanting and will benefit from some years in the cellar.

John Shafer founded Shafer in 1979, he went from riding commuter trains in Chicago to riding a TD-9 tractor in Napa. A blend of 56%Merlot, 28%Cab Sauv & 16%Malbec, aged for 20 mos in French oak, despite its 15.3% ABV, it’s well balanced. Wonderful berry fruit aromas, flavors of cherry, jammy blackberry and rasp with notes of cacao and sweet herbs. Lingering finish ending with earthy mineral. Had this with a USDA prime Fillet. Drink now & over next few years, longer the wine will lose its vibrant quality.
