2012 is the vintage that keeps on giving. Perfect growing conditions gave life to a bounty of fully matured grapes profoundly anchored to the soil that bore them. Our treasured Bo-Teek vineyard calls out from every glass of this Elevation Cabernet with a sound that stirs our soul and draws us near to the nuanced depths of dark berries, premium chocolate, lightly roasted coffee and cigar box. A full structure of meticulously resolved tannins interlaced with a bright acidity gives this wine a current heft plus a promise for a great future. Cradle a splash of this wonderful vintage in your glass and instantly fall in love. > Learn More

Brilliant medium purple. Fresh ripe red & black fruit; cherry, strawberry, & wild raspberry. Intense spice / sous bois, smoke. Granite minerality. Light-bodied, vibrant acid, grippy though delicate tannins; with surprisingly powerful fruit & spice; punching above its weight in flavour. Very balanced & low alcohol.
"The 2016 'La Deveze' is a wonderful showing which beings with inviting aromas of black raspberries and dark red plums that are woven together with licorice, spices and fresh lavender. This medium-bodied red possesses wonderful balance, concentration and depth with a gorgeous velvety texture, which is layered with ripe dark fruits and licorice. This will be accessible upon release, but will also develop nicely with another year of bottle age."
Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables
Creekside's flagship red grape variety continues to deliver elegance and great flavour. The 2013 vintage is decidedly aromatic, with aromas of violets, plum, red currant and white pepper. The palate is medium bodied with bright fruit flavours of wild raspberry and strawberry, followed by a savoury cedar and white pepper finish. This wine is just dandy now but will develop further in bottle. > Learn More

Valpolicella is the quintessential pizza and pasta wine, grown in the Veneto region of Italy, just north of Verona. Aromatic wine with cherries and a hint of almond. Lighter-bodied and predominantly fruity, it shows unusually good fruit concentration for Valpolicella, with lovely cherry fruit flavours, violets and a hint of white pepper. > Learn More
Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Vegetables
Enjoy the best of Cabernet and Merlot in a single glass. This Meritage or blend serves up soft, savoury aromas of raspberry, cherry, and spice with more subtle notes of mint and chocolate. On the palate, it's smooth, medium-bodied, and well-structured with fine tannins and an underlying sheen of acidity to balance out the fruit. Finishes with rich, lingering flavours. Overall, a smooth, easy-drinking red that can be enjoyed alone or paired with a variety of foods. > Learn More
For many"”and for many years"”the benchmark Baco Noir in Ontario hails from Henry of Pelham. Aromas of dark briary berry mingling with wisps of oak segue a balanced and fruity palate-coating wash of black raspberry and mixed field berry adorned with spice, espresso roast and racy, lively acidity. It's medium bodied with a generous mouth feel and a lip-smacking aftertaste. Give it a go with smoked, grilled ribs slathered in BBQ sauce, meat-laden pizza or stews.
4 out of 5 stars - WineCurrent.com, Feb 2012 (2010 vintage)
Bright, deep purple-red. Delicate aromas of red cherry and peppery blackberry, along with a touch of oak. Enters juicy and fresh, with blueberry jam, underbrush and black pepper flavors. Finishes moderately long and smooth, with modest complexity but a bright whiplash of fruit. Harvested between September 25 and November 3, fermented in stainless steel, then aged for six to eight months in American oak, roughly one-quarter of which was new.

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.
