    Ruby red colour with violet tones. Stunning fruit quality and depth of flavour.

  4. New Cornas Les Ruchets by Jean-Luc Colombo 2017

    $899.94

    Jean Luc Colombo

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat


    "Intensely fruity and glossy in mouthfeel, this supple Syrah is packed with flavors of cassis preserve and plum. A ripe expression of Cornas, it maintains the classic signature too, a smokiness accentuated by hints of bacon fat, ore and sage. Vibrant acidity and fine, gripping tannins lend firm structure. Gorgeous already the wine will meld, gain depth and perfume through 2037 and hold further."

    96 points / Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast, July 2020

    "Inky violet color. Powerful black/blue fruit, smoky bacon, wisteria, vanilla and licorice scents are sharpened by black pepper and mineral notes. Concentrated blueberry, cherry liqueur and spicecake flavors show outstanding clarity and a sexy floral nuance. Deftly blends depth and energy and finishes extremely long and sappy, with building tannins framing the wines densely packed, juicy fruit."

  5. $1,139.94

    Bien Nacido Estate

    California (USA)

    6 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "The 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard The XO emerges from the X Block, the coldest site on the property, and is 100% Syrah grafted onto own-rooted Riesling. Aromatically explosive and intense, the 2016 remains bright and light on its feet for such an intense wine. Hints of black pepper, mint, lavender and licorice add layers of nuance. More than anything else, the XO is all class. This is such a tremendous wine."

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.
