Parducci_2008_CabSauvOn the first night, I thought this wine was rather boring.  There was nothing wrong with it, but the mild red cherry fruit was quite simple, with a slight herbaceous note.

The saved, single-glass, screwcap bottle was better.  Some of the red cherry had darkened to purplish dark red cherry, and the herbaceous notes were more pronounced and complex.  It was much better, but still hardly exciting.
