2011 Suspiro del Moro
Alvarelhão, an exotically aromatic red, native to north-western Iberia and of late taken root in Alta Mesa. Suspiro continues to weave its spell, guiding us through alternate histories and elliptical futures. Alvarelhão? There is no other.
This vintage is showing tropical fruits of papaya and starfruit, with bright tart cranberries, brought to earth with pencil shavings, tomato leaf, and clove.
Serving notes: This lovely bottle has some solids that have collected in the neck from years of proper storage. You needn't be alarmed, they just hold more of the magic of this library wine. You can decant into a vessel if you like, and let the solids settle to the bottom before serving.
