This is great! My new favorite wine. I tend to be leery of cutesy labels, but I was spurred on by this recommendation www.flickr.com/photos/winediva/352993676/ and it was well worth it! This is a bit fruity, with a hint of tartness. Light and smooth. Lots of cherry. Very drinkable, immediately after opening. And I admit - the label makes me smile. Love the little hearts. I think I paid $11 for this.

Have to say that it was the label on the bottle and a recommendation from my sister to try it, since this is my first time tasting a Grenache . A little on the dry side (semi) for my palette but was great with spicy foods.

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.

Wine Advocate # 173 Oct 2007 Jay Miller 90pts 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 Bitch Grenache received no oak treatment. Medium ruby-colored, it presents an alluring bouquet of earth, smoke, rhubarb, cherry, and strawberry. Supple, sweet, and tasty, this wine totally over-delivers for its humble price and is an exceptional value. That is Robert Parker's Wine Advocate rating. While I agree this is one delicious wine, I found it to be a little thiner than I would have liked, but otherwise an easy wine to enjoy. kybecca.com

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.
