The other day, I was at the store, and I saw this bottle of Bitch in the wine section. I was immediately drawn to it. With a name like that, can you blame me? It was on sale too. Under $10, and I’m a big fan of grenache. This Bitch had to come home with me.
If you’re not familiar with grenache (or garnacha), you will mainly find grown in Spain or France. Winemakers will use it in their blends because it lacks acid and tannins. A perfect blending wine. It also has a high alcohol content level. Bitch wine is a high 15.5% alcohol. For comparisons, most wines are 12.5% alcohol.
Bitch Wine Grenache 2009($9.99)
Bitch wine is fruity and medium-bodied. It’s a strong Bitch, intense of cherry and raspberry. Not too peppery or spicy, but it’s there. You can definitely taste the spice. A sweeter grenache with a deep, ruby color. Cherries and strawberries on the bouquet and linger to the finish. I would pair it with a chocolate mousse or a savory-sweet dish like duck with a cherry reduction sauce.
This is not the wine you take to a wine connoisseur’s 5-course dinner party. It’s too sweet for my taste and lacks depth. However, I’m sure you’ll get plenty of laughs. For the price and endless jokes, I would highly recommend Bitch for a girls’ night in. Not sure if you should take this to Easter dinner. Definitely don’t give to your mother-in-law… until after the divorce.
Check out my YouTube video on Bitch:
Thank you for this wonderful review, Maggie Unzueta.
You might now, but I probably would take this to Easter dinner. Thank goodness that I actually could give this to my ex-mother-in-law except for the fact that I’d have to ship it over the Atlantic.
By the way, your video is brilliantly engaging. 🙂
Thanks, Christopher. My video was a bitch to make. 🙂

I’ve been branching out and trying new wines. My husband loves picking up random bottles to try with me. I’ll look for this one.
Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
