  1. $179.40

    Andover Estate

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    Andover wines are pure expressions of their varieties and the singular terroir of our estate vineyards. This Pinot Noir is high toned, open and perfumed with intense aromatics and layers of ripe red fruit. Flavors of strawberries, raspberries and cherries blend elegantly with an underlying stratum of vanilla from 12 months of aging on French oak. The tannins are soft and silky and the finish is elegant and graceful. Arroyo Seco is a remarkable sub-appellation that consistently yields a deep and compelling Pinot Noir.

  2. New Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOP by Tiberio 2016

    $299.40

    Azienda Agricola Tiberio

    Abruzzo (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat


    "Good bright red. Vibrant aromas of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and minerals, complicated by delicate hints of spices (coriander, cumin, tarragon). Then very silky on the palate, but displaying outstanding lift and intensity to the flavors of red cherry, pomegranate, flowers and tar. Very suave but juicy and fresh Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine with none of the heaviness that often drags down wines of this variety. The finish is suave and bracing and shows a delightful light touch."

  3. $299.40

    Isaac Fernandez Selección

    Ribeira Sacra (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese


    These fifty-plus year-old Mencía vines have succeeded nicely in 2016, offering up a fine aromatic constellation of cassis, pepper, espresso, graphite, a superb base of slate and a topnote of bonfire. On the palate the wine is pure, fullbodied and nicely sappy at the core, with impressive transparency, modest tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. This is still a young wine and will gain in complexity with further bottle age, but it is very nicely balanced out of the blocks and already a pleasure to drink. Quite a classic example of the slightly moredelicate style of Mencía planted on the terraces above the Miño River.

    The red Burgundy comes from vineyards in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The vines range in age from 30 to 80 years and are farmed sustainably. The major part of this wine is matured in barriques and the remainder is done in stainless steel. This maintains a pure style with bright fruit and a fine texture. > Learn More

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Rich Fish


    Bright ruby colour, youthful, medium intensity aromas of ripe strawberry, cherry, & cranberry. Subtle sous-bois & organic earth notes. Light-bodied, with purity of flavor mimicking the nose. Distinctly Oregonian; a fresh, unoaked, pure Willamette Pinot Noir.

    12 x 375 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "The 2016 Pommard has a fragrant bouquet, poised and elegant with blackberry and crushed strawberry scents. The palate is clean and fresh, quite detailed for a Village Cru with a focused and lightly spiced finish. Very fine." - Neal Martin, Vinous Media, July 2018

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best red wine, along with the best red wine to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of red wines. To name some we have, dry red wine, sweet red wine, full bodied red wine, medium bodied red wine, light red wine, tannic red wine and structured red wine. There is a litany of words used to describe red wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of red wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce red wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top red wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular red wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for red wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good red wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best, along with the best values, in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

When it comes to red wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking red wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different red wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your red wine and the taste of your red wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best red wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.
