Bitch Grenache Ml 26-2end 2006

Member Review by Wine Fire:

Opens with a strong fruit and spice nose that grows increasingly complex over the first 3 to 4 hours with decanting. Aromas include spice, cloves, cherry, vanilla, earth, and white pepper. Palate is well spread, with notes of vanilla, spice, cloves, cherry, strawberry and a peppery wall at the back in the first thirty minutes. Overall arrangement tames from strong earth/tobacco/white pepper to strong dark fruit bass and cherry treble notes after about 3 hours uncorked, on both nose and palate. Very elegant, complex, and interesting grenache that reveals numerous layers if given time.

The Bitch:
Bitch is the wine with the cheeky name and the sassy pink label produced by R Wines. This was originally a partnership between Australian winemaker Dan Phillips and California importer Chris Ringland, who imported it through Grateful Palates. As of press time, the partnership appears to have dissolved and Ringland is now producing the wine in Aragon, Spain. Bitch wines are available in red Grenache and “Bubbly,” a Chardonnay sparkling blend.

Loved it! Price points a little steep so 4.5 glasses. Excellent aromas of toffee/caramel - I could keep my face in the glass all day! Beautiful dark ruby red and firm legs (15% vol) Very smooth with a nice med/full body front of blueberry and fruitcake taste. Nice transition through mid with a medium finish. Very mellow tannins and low acidity. Very happy with this wine!

Misleadingly light ruby and pink in the glass - this wine is a big fruity monster. Bright blueberry and cherry aromas with a light citrus zest. On the palate it is rich and full, with good acidity to keep it from getting cloying. Big candied blood or... Mike Supple.

Bitch Grenache is sourced from 40- to 60-year-old vines from the Ebenezer sub-region of the Barossa. With the price of Cotes du Rhone soaring due to the weak dollar, I am hard pressed to think of a better value in full-flavored Grenache. The 2006 Bit... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This bright ruby wine presents a nose of caramel and toffee mingled with warm spices. Sweet fruitcake, blueberry jam, and quince paste flavors. Recommended to pair with red meat.
