Saline Syrah from Morocco


The 2014 Domaine des Ouled Thaleb, Syrocco, Syrah Zenata, Morocco is the result of a joint effort between Domaine des Ouled Thaleb and Alain Graillot, a Northern Rhone wine producer.  Syrah is the red grape of the Northern Rhone and it shows to good effect in this wine.  I find there is a distinct salinity throughout this blackberry flavored wine.  It is a fun wine to share with friends.  I purchased my bottle at MacArthur Beverages and ordered it off the list at St. Anselm DC.

2014 Domaine des Ouled Thaleb, Syrocco, Syrah Zenata, Morocco – $25
Imported by Europvin.  This wine is 100% Syrah fermented in concrete vats then aged for 15 months in tank and large oak casks.  Alcohol 13%.  Salty with blackberries and though maturing, it clearly has staying power.  There is fine texture from the structure and supportive acidity.  The salinity is remarkable.  **(*) Now – 2024.
