    Megalomaniac

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Bright and dark garnet colour with nuances of purple and dark cherry. Intense and aromatic bouquet of red and black berries, red and black plums, spicy vanilla oak with hint of undergrowth and wild berries. Second nose is creamier with nuances of wildberry pie, ripe blueberries and white pepper. Firm but elegant attack on ripe black fruits and mature, smooth tannins. Weighty midpalate filled with fruit and oak spice supported by a nice tension on minerality and freshness. Persistent final focuses on fresh berries, smooth texture with nuances of vanilla beans.

     

    "Here's a very fragrant, gentle and rich yet refined merlot that captures the essence of the variety well. Lifted aromas raspberry/blackberry, floral, gentle forest floor stay focused on the palate. It is medium-full bodied, almost svelte in texture with easy appeal. The tannins are quite fine, the length is very good to excellent length."

    "This is fresh and supple with attractive sweet red cherry fruit, showing some nice texture with fine-grained tannins. Really pretty and expressive with just a hint of vanilla and spice under the light, fragrant wild strawberry and herb notes. Very pure and enticing."

    Megalomaniac

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "Ripe, perfumed, wood-inflected, high quality oak in this case, featuring bitter chocolate and vanillins alongside red but mostly fresh black fruit, and candied violets. The palate is mid-weight, polished, with very fine tannins and balanced acids, yet I'd suggest another year or two in bottle to more fully integrate the oak and develop additional complexity. There's enough stuffing here to see it emerge in a better place after 2022. Impressive depth and elegance on offer."

    91 Points/5 Star Value Rating - John Szabo MS, Wine Align, February 2020

    "This is dense and spicy with some grippy tannins as well as berry and cherry fruits, with a touch of oak spice and a nice contrast between the sleek, ripe fruit and the grippy tannins. Nicely poised with lovely focus to the fruit."

    This is a luscious version of Bravado – highly concentrated, with lovely earthy tones set over a bed of crushed ripe cherries. Oh my! Pair with anything beef or wintery.

    Bright, dark berry colour with nuances of purple.  The nose nose has Intense layers of varietal aromatics of dark berries, oak spice, cassis, undergrowth, with a touch of meatiness. The palate is smooth, yet firm, attack of blackcurrant with a dense and broad midpalate that balances between texture, fruit weight and mature tannins. Persistent final of warm berries and spice that leads to a pleasant and refreshing youthful tension.

    "Lush yet linear, powerful but not at all fat, this wine is all about great tension, dignity and understated complexity. Just a magnetic red that keeps you swirling and coming back to it again and again. Try it. You’ll see."

    96 Points - Carolyn Evans Hammond, The Toronto Star, November 2019

     

    "18 months in French oak. Lovely nose, combining lavender, spice and dried herbs with berry fruit and some gravel and spice. The palate has some tannic bite and grippy structure, but also fresh fruit with nice black cherry, raspberry and red cherry notes. It’s fresh, but also has some fruit sweetness. Real finesse here, with structure that suggests this could age well over the next decade."

    Dense and dark black cherry colour with nuances of purple with heavy, slow legs.  Intense and aromatic bouquet of wild red berries, dark cherries, wildflowers and vanilla beans with nuances of chocolate and mocha. The second nose is showing more ripe blackberries, a hint of dried flowers as well as undergrowth.

The midpalate expresses more fruit with layers of red and black wild berries, oak spice, dried flowers and creamy cacao beans. The final shows length and tension on fruit, minerality and firmer tannins with great elegant texture.

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.
