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.R Wines is a new company founded by importer and marketing genius Dan Philips along with co-owner renowned winemaker Chris Ringland. Winemakers for R Wines are Chris Ringland Lisa Wetherell Andrew Hercock and John Hughes. It encompasses four familiar labels Marquis Philips 3 Rings Roogle and Bitch along with 13 others created especially for R Wines. Needless to say the packaging of these wines is amazingly creative but more importantly what is in the bottle consistently over-delivers from low-end to high-end.

Bright blueberry and cherry aromas with a light citrus zest. On the palate it is rich and full with good acidity to keep it from getting cloying. Big candied blood orange flavors back ripe cherry and raspberry with a light earthy edge to the lingering fruit.
