Duckhorn 2003 Estate Grown Merlot (Napa Valley)

Pretty tannic for a Merlot. It's a dusty, super-dry, tight young wine with a fair amount of astringency. But the fruit is something else. The huge cherry pie and toasty, vanilla oak flavors are just delicious. Hard to tell if it will soften before the fruit drops out, though.
