Hello Snooth!

Hi fellow wine lovers. Just found your site. Love red wines and have just returned from Marrakech.

Syrah de Sidoua 2011 was ordered, at a vast cost, but was lovely.

Welcome Nairn. I am a tad envious.  Unfortunately, I am not very comfortable with world travel, bu Morocco is one place I would like to visit.

I happen to be sipping a California Syrah as I am sitting here.  I am quite unfamiliar with Syrah de Sidoua 2011.  Can you tell me a bit about it?

Good evening EMARK.

We were staying in the Taj Palace Hotel in Marrakech and had dinner 2 nights in their very expensive Indian/Japanese restaurant...a special treat, not the usual kind of place I would go.

 

This wine was on the list and when I asked for a Syrah the waiter said this one was good. It came in a very heavy bottle and was superb. It was a very heavy wine, but went very well with the Indian dishes. It was warm and full of flavour.I think we paid about Uk 35 pounds for the bottle, but it was so good we ordered it again the next night and again were not disappointed.Syrah/Shiraz is my favourite wine ansd this rated amongst some of the better ones I have had.

Thank you, Nairnwitch.  It sounds like you enjoyed some great meals with a great wine.  I can't find any information about this wine on-line.  So, I'm guessing that I won't be seeing it on any store shelf near me.  Oh well, this is just one more wine that I will have to enjoy vicariously.  :-)

I have just found the cork!!!! and it says Ouled Thaleb Morocco Africa

If you pop this into google, there are a few places in the US amongst others that sell

wines from this vineyard.

Moroccan!  Very cool.  I'll start a new quest, Nairnwitch.  Thank you.
