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.
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. 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.
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 2-3 years.
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.
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.
