2009 Bordeaux Release Now Available at Liberty Wine Merchants

Merlot grapes (complements Wikipedia)

This announcement by Liberty Wine Merchants in Vancouver just came through my email.  If you are a Bordeaux fan, you may want to pick up some of the 2009 vintage.  From a quick look I notice that all are primarily Merlot with lesser amounts of the other Bordeaux varieties.
