  1. New Big Red VQA by Big Head 2018

    $264.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Red Meat, Soft Cheese, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    The addition of full appassimento in the blend makes this the fullest Big Red so far. The nose is ripe, confectionary, and spicy. Black and red berries in strawberry Jell-O, cardamom, vanilla and hot cinnamon spill out of the glass. The palate is dry, but with a pleasant ripeness layered with buttery caramel tones from the oak that will stay with you. The addition of the Syrah adds a savory touch to the finish.

  2. New Big Red Select VQA by Big Head 2018

    $360.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    BBQ, Foie gras, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Suckling Pig


    This is a more intense and perfumed version of the Big Red Select; there is a lot going on. Intense aromas of fresh, dried, and candied red fruit, earthiness, and baking spice aromas are well integrated. This wine smells like it will taste sweet. The palate is dry, however, and there is a fresh acidity, pleasant tannins, and some heat from the alcohol. A lot fresher red fruit on the palate than on the nose. A wine made for savory and fatty barbecue.

  3. $480.00

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Suckling Pig


    A very interesting expression of the Gamay. This is our first year making it, so we didn't know what to expect nor did we push it in any direction. The nose is intense, showing candied red fruit, red licorice, star anise, and maple. The palate does not match the nose and is very bright. This is a wine to have with food until that acid subsides. Salt, acid, or fat will be your friend here. Rich dishes based on fatty pork, duck or game. Choucroute Garnie comes to mind.

  4. New Pinot Noir Select VQA by Big Head 2018 Pinot Noir Select VQA by Big Head 2018

    $540.00

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Pasta with Cream Sauce, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Veal roasted, Vegetables, White Meat


    A modern example of Pinot Noir, showing dried black cherry, black tea, dried cranberry, and swiss herb candy with a whiff of pipe smoke. There is a sweetness on the nose, but the palate is dry and the tannins are present in the front. The dried fruit aroma is refreshed by a pronounced acidity, typical of the variety and the cooler vintage. I would recommend fattier game and poultry dishes, or lightly aromatic tomato based sauce on pasta.

  5. New Cabernet Sauvignon Select VQA by Big Head 2018

    $576.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    BBQ, Cured Meat, Foie gras, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    I find that cooler vintages can make more opulent, aromatically intense and complex wines that overly hot vintages. 2018 was cool, and wet. The carbonic treatment of the wine amplified the nose and freshened up the fruit after drying. There is an intense plum and black cherry that moves into a hint of roasted pepper and pickling spice. The palate is dry, and the tannins are grippy, but the freshness throughout the entire mouthfeel is pleasing. This is a deceptive wine since the acidity balances out the weight nicely. I would recommend this with rich, fatty, and grilled meats finished with flakey salt.

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    BBQ, Cured Meat, Duck breast, Foie gras, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    Well this is attractive. This wine smells seductive and silky, if you could smell texture. Aromas of ripe plum and blueberry jam are layered with vanilla and cinnamon. On the pallet it is dry and juicy (ripe and acidic at the same time)  with silky tannins that grip up. The flavour warms and stays with you.  This Merlot and a steak is perfection.

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Veal roasted, Vegetables, White Meat


    A perfect food pairing Pinot Noir.  On the nose, you'll find fruity sour cherry, cranberry and orange zest with spicy, earthy tarragon and clove. The palate is dry and fresh, and the tannins grab a hold at the end.  Roasted poultry or whole baked fish would go well with this and don’t be shy with the aromatic herbs.

  8. New Cabernet Franc Select VQA by Big Head 2017

    $660.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Veal roasted


    A plush nose of dried cherry, dried raspberry, cacao and dried leaves. On the palate, the wine is full of ripe red berry fruit, juicy acidity and sweet tannins that linger and finishes dry. There is a perception of sweetness on the tongue, but that’s just the fruit character and higher alcohol. Pairs wonderfully with grilled red or game meats but the wine can be appreciated on its own.

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    An Old World style Malbec that's interesting and a bit geeky. One the nose you will find elevated wild berry with slight floral character from the carbonic maceration. There are some herbal and tea undertones with a barnyard finish from the Brettanomyces.  The palate is fresh and the tannins are already integrated. A really enjoyable wine!

  10. $390.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    This is a powerful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon even without the presence of oak. There is an intense nose of ripe cassis, cardamom, damson plum, and a hint of tar and leather. The palate is concentrated and drying, with a pleasing acidity and a long ripe finish. The fruit shines through on the palate.  Enjoy it decanted and paired perfectly with a ribeye.  This wine will age nicely.

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.
