The Bitch Grenache 2006

Member Review by GreenVelvet:

This is great! My new favorite wine. I tend to be leery of cutesy labels, but I was spurred on by this recommendation www.flickr.com/photos/winediva/352993676/ and it was well worth it! This is a bit fruity, with a hint of tartness. Light and smooth. Lots of cherry. Very drinkable, immediately after opening. And I admit - the label makes me smile. Love the little hearts. I think I paid $11 for this.

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.

Have to say that it was the label on the bottle and a recommendation from my sister to try it, since this is my first time tasting a Grenache . A little on the dry side (semi) for my palette but was great with spicy foods.

Wine Advocate # 173 Oct 2007 Jay Miller 90pts 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. That is Robert Parker's Wine Advocate rating. While I agree this is one delicious wine, I found it to be a little thiner than I would have liked, but otherwise an easy wine to enjoy. kybecca.com
