2008 Crios Cabernet Sauvignon: Sour first night, tannic and flavorless the second
UPDATE: second night. we'd forgotten to pressurize it last night and so just screwed on the cap this morning hoping it wouldn't make a difference. (nothing against screwtops, either. i think there are more and more screwtops that are on the better side of good these days.) apparently our mistake was an improvement: this time, paired with a pork loin, steamed broccoli and potato perogies, it was tannic and the sourness had disappeared. so, however, had the flavors. this was like eating paper. a definite wallflower cab; drink if you don't want an accompanying personality.
