Ouled Thaleb, Morocco () “Ait Souala” 2012

($23, Nomadic Distribution): Named after Ait Souala, once the largest winemaking estate in Africa, this is a ripe blend of Arinarnoa (50%) and equal amounts of Tannat and Malbec.  A big, muscular wine, which still has surprising freshness, it finishes smooth and round.  It’s another good choice this winter.
