Wine Enthusiast:

"Aromas of black cherry, espresso bean and white chocolate tease the palate in this Moroccan blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah. Brightness reigns despite powerful tannins, and flavors of black cherry, rhubarb, jalapeño, coriander seed, vanilla and citrus zest are a pleasure on the tongue." Reviewed 10/2015

Product Description:

"Dark red. Warm, plummy nose. Cherry and a little tar. Syrah influence. Soft, sweet palate. Fine tannins. Good balanceNot all of North Africa consists of sand dunes and desert. Morocco's best vineyards, nestled at the bottom of the Atlas Mountains, benefit from cooling breezes from the Atlantic Ocean. Ouled Thaleb is the oldest continuously operating winery in Morocco; the vineyards were planted near Ben Slimane in the 1920s. The winery is ten miles northeast of Casablanca facing the ocean. The 2012 Médaillon is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah aged for 12 months in French oak. Dark purple garnet color. Cabernet aromas are predominant on the nose: black cherry, cassis and plum. In the mouth this red is juicy with cherry and black currant flavors, integrated oak and soft tannins. Serve with Moroccan or Middle Eastern cuisine or any rich beef or lamb dish." Winery Tasting Notes
