“Plump as a baby,” says the Wine Enthusiast which gave the 2000 de Lorimier Merlot an impressive 91-Points. They go on to say,“layers of blackberry, cherry and coffee flavors, a rich, round wine with enough weight to accompany big roasted meats.The long,extracted finish suggests mid-term aging, but it’s gorgeous now.”The Wine & Spirits magazine chimed in with a rating of 91-Points too— “There’s a lovely textural build to this wine, from a tight, impacted feel when first poured, broadening to a bold and lively red-fruited merlot plumpness . . . A lot of substance, especially at the price.”This lovely wine is just now being entered into the 2004 wine competitions and already grabbed a Gold Medal in the first event of the season.Try it with grilled lamb or pork tenderloin.
