    "The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin: tart red berried fruit, laced with tobacco and dried herbs on the dry, crisp finish. This is a superb classical Rioja Crianza and a stunning value."

    "I loved the wild character of the young, unoaked 2017 Señorío de P. Peciña Cosecha, mostly Tempranillo with some 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. It had a light maceration and extraction and was kept in tank for two months before bottling. It has a raw and savage nose, mixing raspberry leaf and earthy aromas, full of character with elegant rusticity. It's juicy and chewy, as pure as it gets. I'd love to see this wine in a couple of years. 60,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2017."

    "Wild rosemary, thyme and tar flavors shade the black cherry and strawberry notes in this firm red, which is sinewy, with mouthcoating tannins on the dusty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2018 through 2024."

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


    "Deep purple color. Roasted aromas and flavors of chocolate coconut macaroon, honeycomb and peach tapioca, roasted nuts, and toasted cedar plank with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish that shows notes of dark chocolate mousse, creme brulee, and ground nuts with fine, chewy tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A spot on petite sirah with great flavor and finesse."

Fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of chocolate sesame candy, pistachio nougat, spicy berry pie, and tangerine with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-long vanilla toffee, dried raspberry, and smoked nuts finish with silky tannins and light oak. A very tasty, nicely made cabernet with fine flavor and structure."

  6. New Cabernet Sauvignon by Ancient Peaks 2016

    $419.40

    Ancient Peaks

    California (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific value and is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, and the rest Petite Sirah. It has a Bordeaux-ish bouquet of new saddle leather, cedarwood, tobacco leaf, and smoky black fruits as well as medium body, plenty of fruit, sweet tannins, and a good finish. It’s not going to make old bones, but it has serious character, and I’d happily drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years.”

    90 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Dec 2018

     

    “Floral aromas of violet and cherry blossom drop into rich black-cherry and cocoa tones on the nose of this widely available bottling. The palate is juicy in black cherry and blackberry flavors, with accents of oak and cracked pepper, all framed by a chalky texture.”

    90 points, Wine Enthusiast, March 2019

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.
