The Bitch 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Much like last year's inaugural vintage, the 2005 Bitch is loaded with pizzazz, maybe just a touch firmer. Appearance: Medium crimson to cranberry with a slight unfiltered haze, bright pink around the edges to match the label. Aromas: Raspberry, cherry, Belgian milk chocolate, Madagascar vanilla, and hints of nutmeg. Ripe and sweet-tart around the edges, dry on the tongue with youthful mild tannins that are just a bit gravelly. Chocolate covered raspberry and cherry flavors finish firmly with a hint of gravelly mineral and pepper, not to mention a real kick"". This red is on the money for what it's trying to be, and is arguably more effective than a box of Godiva chocolates at 1/3 the price. Outstanding value ($10). Closure: Screw cap. Alcohol content: 15%. Food pairing: A selection of artisan dried meats or a ""kick ass"" bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich served with a flavorful soup. """

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.
