Shafer Vineyards, TD-9 Red Blend Napa Valley 2016 750ML
Napa Valley, California Red blend of 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Malbec.
Tasting Notes: Very deep purple-black color and displays ready-for-biz, fragrant scents of warm plums, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote with touches of baking spices, bay leaves and potpourri. Full-bodied with a serious, firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins, the palate delivery loads of black fruit and spicy layers with bags of vivacity and panache.
