This week I drank Bitch wine. . .sorry if that offends anyone? But it is good wine! Meredith and I happened upon this wine one night at Cru, a local wine bar, because it was one of the wines in the flight we had ordered. We liked it so much we ordered a full glass to enjoy.
It makes me laugh every time I hear someone go, I had the best wine the other day, it’s called. . .and they quietly say “bitch.”
It is a Grenache, which according to Wikipedia is the most widely planted variety of red wine grape in the world. Who knew, because I hardly ever hear about Grenache. This particular wine/grape comes from Australia.
Maybe I’m drawn to this wine because I think the label’s cute, maybe it’s cause it is around $10 or maybe because it is just good? But it definitely isn’t because it is a screw cap! I am always disappointed when I find a wine I really like and it is a screw cap. . .there’s just something about not having a cork that I miss.
I like that K&L Wines says, “This ain’t your Daddy’s Grenache. This is a wine about pleasure.” In fact, this wine is actually pretty highly regarded; Robert Parker even gave it 90 points which Is pretty impressive.
Over the last few months I have been mainly drinking out of Beth’s stemless wine glasses that Teal gave her, but for this wine I decided to spruce things up and use my fancy Kate Spade glasses that I love, I just don’t use them enough.
I am not quite sure what next week’s wine will be, sometimes it is just hard to decide. As soon as I do I’ll let you know so you can drink along. . .
