Wine Enthusiast: “The winery’s proprietary blend of 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Malbec is hugely impressive and memorable, with a smoky, toasted oak character. Plush flavors of blackberry and cherry jam meld with spice on the rich, round midpalate. It offers plenty of grip and concentration, finishing on a handful of dried herb.” May 2019

Robert Parker, Jr.’s Wine Advocate:  “The 2016 Red Blend TD-9 is blended of 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Malbec. It has a 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. Drink date: 2019 – 2044.” Oct 2018

Vinous:  “The 2016 TD-9 exudes raciness and total class, along with a bit better balance than the 2015 tasted alongside it. In 2016, winemaker Elias Fernandez aged the components together, which, along with the natural pedigree of the vintage, goes a long way in shaping the wine’s striking quality. A burst of red cherry, plum, lavender, rose petal and spice lead into the silky, super-polished finish.”   Dec 2018

Jeb Dunnuck:  ” the 2016 TD-9 checks in as 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 16% Malbec and is a cuvée first made in 2015. Revealing considerable elegance and purity as well as medium to full-bodied richness, it offers up a terrific bouquet of black cherry and blackberry fruits, tobacco, lavender, and an alluring forest floor character. It’s already drinking beautifully yet will keep for upwards of a decade. Maturity: 2019 – 2029.” Jan 2019

Winery:  “This second vintage of TD-9 offers bright, energetic aromas and flavors of red plum, raspberry, strawberry, spice box, exotic fruit, and red licorice.  The momentum of all this enticing fruit, along with ripe tannins, is carried through to a long, tantalizing, feast of a finish.”
