Wouldn’t this be a real treat for a bachlorette party or girls night out? The back label says “bitch” 77 times, followed by “some more”. It is left up to you to decide what that means, because the sentiment would be appropriate for many contemporary situations. Whatever inspired it, thank goodness it arrived, because it is better than a box of chocolates.


Note added Jan. 2, 2007: The Bitch 2005 has been released and reviewed by Winewaves.
Dan Philips is working with grower David Hickinbotham and winemaker Chris Ringland to bring this 100% Grenache from Barossa to the market.

Tasting Notes: Color: Ruby, translucent. Aromas: Raspberry, cherry and chocolate and a hint of spice. On the tongue, the wine feels warm without being heavy, despite the hefty 14.7% alcohol, and is dry without being drying. The lush fruit and chocolate flavors finish very smoothly. This one is easy without being uninteresting.

Closure: Screw cap. Outstanding value ($9)
