Why does this wine suck?

1998 Chateau Graysac in a half bottle. Bought at the wine store and opened same day.

It tastes: a little thin, a little sour, VERY tannic...just about makes the sides of my tongue roll up. Not hot really, but the alcohol seems a little strong once the wine is in my mouth. No fruit that I can taste.

Is it just me? I'm a neophyte. Was that a bad year? Is that too old to have been sitting on a wine store shelf? Thanks in advance for the continuing wine remediation.
