Wine Enthusiast: "The winerys proprietary blend of 58 percent Merlot, 26 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 16 percent 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 gripand concentration, finishing on a handful of dried herb." May 2019Robert Parker, Jr.s Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Red Blend TD-9 is blended of 58 percent Merlot, 26 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 16 percent Malbec. Ithas 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 bakingspices, bay leaves and potpourri. Full-bodied with a serious, firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins, the palate delivery loads of black fruit and spicy layerswith bags of vivacity and panache. Drink date: 2019 - 2044." Oct 2018Vinous: "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 wines strikingquality. A burst of red cherry, plum, lavender, rose petal and spice lead into the silky, super-polished finish." Dec 2018Jeb Dunnuck: " the 2016 TD-9 checks in as 58 percent Merlot, 26 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, and 16 percent Malbec and is a cuve 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. Its already drinking beautifully yet will keep for upwards of a decade. Maturity: 2019 - 2029."Jan 2019Winery: "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, feastof a finish."
