This is one of my first experiences with Grenache and it's not bad. Pale red in color, it's obviously much lighter bodied than most red wines I favor. Reminds me of strawberry or raspberry jam, though not really sweet. I'm drinking it at room temp but it might be good with a bit of a chill - nice, easy drinker. Would probably be good with food, but not anything with a terribly strong flavor.
I really like grenache so I am biased but I recently tried this and it is one omy new favorties for around $10. Very drinkable, nice couch wine.

I LOVE this wine! My sister bought me a bottle for my Birthday...first of all, I am NOT picky about wine....I had the biggest laugh at the label and immediately opened it (I'm far from a bitch, but my sis couldn't resist!) The taste, to me anyways, is delicious! It's not too dry, not too sweet....1 bottle just wasn't enough! I see the rating on Snooth is low....I was surprised because I've been looking for "Bitch" everywhere locally....cannot find it. She got it in a small boutique shop while she was out of town. Happy to know I can order some thru Snooth! Thanks so much!
I bought it because the name was funny and it was pink, but it ended up being really tasty and amazing!
Bought it first for the fun label. Keep buying it for the fun flavors. My new "girls night" staple!

Full bodied and fleshy, this in no lightweight Grenache. Dominant flavors of over-ripe strawberries and raspberries keep the 15.5% alcohol tolerable, and the creamy texture is nothing to bitch about. The aftertaste is spicy, full of cloves and nutmeg.
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!
Light red. Easygoing red berry and herb aromas, with a touch of mocha. Candied strawberry and raspberry flavors betray some heat, which builds through the jammy red fruit-dominated finish. Supple, straightforward and easy to drink, if a touch hot.
Amber-edged red. Candied strawberry and raspberry on the nose. Light-bodied but slightly syrupy red berry flavors are uncomplicated and a touch slippery. Finishes somewhat abruptly but leaves sweet, confectionery red fruit notes behind. Drink this very cold, as you would a simple roseacute;.
A spectacular bargain, this 100% Grenache (from 40-year-old vines) has nothing ldquo;bitchyrdquo; about it. Gorgeous kirsch liqueur intermixed with pepper and soil undertones result in an Australian Grenache that tastes like a Vacqueyras on steroids. Medium to full-bodied, supple-textured, and silky, this is a stunning example of a value-priced Barossa red. The good news is there is 4,000 cases, and the packaging was designed by someone with considerable imagination. Drink it over the next 1ndash;2 years.
