    Cardinal red tending towards purple. Complex but fresh on the nose. Fruity to start, complimented in time with elegant spicy highlights. The palate is complex and fruity, with soft tannins suggesting the balanced presence of wood, and finishing with a hint of cherry. A generous wine that sits well with strong savoury dishes, light fried courses, roasts, grilled or boiled meats and well aged cheese.

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.
