R Wines Grenache Barossa Valley Bitch 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Opaque ruby. Super-ripe plum and dark berry aromas show a slightly stewed quality. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering syrupy blueberry and plum flavors and a touch of bitter licorice. Finishes slightly greasy and sweet, with a vague burning sensation. This jammy wine would be a great one to crack open after everybody was too hammered to notice its confectionery character, or to friends whose booze preferences run toward Frozen Mudslides and double B-52s. Rumor has it that some people are into this style.

Light red. Candied red berry and cherry aromas are straightforward and lightly spicy. Sweet raspberry and cherry on the palate, with no apparent tannins and a gentle tanginess on the back. A light, uncomplicated, candied wine with lingering jammy berries on the finish.

The 2008 Bitch Grenache is about as good as it gets for $10. Earthy, herbal, sage and garrigue-like aromas mingle with lovely rose petal and cherry scents. Smooth, ripe, flavorful, and seamless on the palate, this friendly effort is all about pleasure. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.

A decent introduction to Australian Grenache, a bit simple and one-dimensionally cherry-fruited but clean, supple and easy to drink despite plenty of body, with just a bit of warmth on the finish. Drink now.

Now hailing from Spain, this bitch is light-bodied, fruity and fun! The nose is juicy; the entry is dark fruits, with not too much development; the finish is smooth, slightly metallic. A great party wine that everyone is sure to enjoy! Food pairing: seafood, spicy foods, Asian Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp

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.
