94 points Anthony Dias Blue (The Tasting Panel): "Predominantly Merlot, with Malbec and Cabernet adding complexity and style. Dark ruby color with a rich plum nose and a lovely, smooth texture; lush with depth, intensity, and elegance. (Jan/Feb 2020)"

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, the 2017 TD-9 Proprietary Red Blend is mostly Merlot yet includes 22% Malbec and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple-hued with sweet aromas of jammy blackberries, spiced cherries, herbes de Provence, and dried flowers, it is a wonderfully textured, medium to full-bodied, balanced red with sweet tannins and a great finish. It’s going to evolve nicely for 10-12 years. Drink: 2020-2032. (1/31/20)"

Producer notes: "58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec. This juicy red blend is loaded with vivid summer fruit – red plum, red cherry, black cherry, and strawberry – along with rhubarb, spice, and red licorice. All this tantalizing freshness comes with energy and ripe tannins for a long, luscious finish. Alcohol 15.3%."
