Weingut Pfaffl Austrian Cherry 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight but clean on the nose with subtle dried herb notes early on, followed by black fruit, gravel and cinnamon. The wine enters the mouth showing very little fruit but lots of acid, though it does broaden in the mouth, gaining a certain level of richness. There are some fairly significant tannins here, soft but abundant, and lovely hints of violet and blueberry-accented fruit on the mid palate, though it fades quickly on the finish, leaving behind some lovely black cherry and floral inner mouth perfumes and those slightly tacky tannins and juicy acidity. This will need a bit of time to open, though it does show fine balance and lovely aromatics in the mouth. 83 points today, plus 5 or so with 2-6 months of rest.

Light berries and dark fruit on the nose. Dark fruit on the tongue with hints of cedar and wood chips.

True to its name, bright cherry red in color. Cherry and raspberry on the nose. Light-bodied and rather tart with red fruits and spice.

This wine improved 200% after decanting... I don't know if this was the "right" thing to do, but I did not really like the wine immediately after opening it.
