The Bitch 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark cherry and raspberry aromas are underpinned with spicy, peppery notes with hints of anise. An approachable wine with sweet, vibrant and juicy fruit that is integrated with balanced tannins and acids.

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.

Cherry/berry flavors are held in check by notes of spice and black licorice. Very lovely and elegant. 91pts

Would recommend to first-time red drinkers. Not overwhelmingly fruity and has just enough tannins to make it a little more complex. Very drinkable.

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 rosé.

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.

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!

The nose and palate are a delicate mix of fruit characters; perfumed raspberries, peach, and poached quince. The palate extends to a juicy, fleshy texture with confectionary flavors of strawberries and cream and finishes with spicy, cloves, and nutmeg.

A spectacular bargain, this 100% Grenache (from 40-year-old vines) has nothing "bitchy" 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 1-2 years.

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.

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.
