    Henry Of Pelham

    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

    "The 2014 Laundry cabernet franc is an archetype of the genre in the cool climate idiom, firm, earthy-herbal, vegetal but not green, with more than a nod back to Loire Valley paradigms. Tannins and acids are well managed, neither taking the fore, both in harmony with the savoury black fruit. Length and depth are very good. Drink or hold another 3-5 years. Tidy stuff."

    Vineland Estates Winery

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml


    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

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    Crafted from the highest quality hand-harvested fruit, this premium blend was assembled from equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. 2010 proved ideal for creating bold reds and the Redstone Meritage is no exception. Aged 18 months in French oak, this complex and layered wine delights with notes of plum, berry compote, spice and a hint of cigar box. > Learn More

  7. $407.70

    Tawse Winery

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    This is the best example of Bordeaux that we have experienced in the last 10 years. Aged 18 months in French oak, this wine shows tart dark fruit, cigar box and herbal aromas. The palate is full with bold tannins, dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Definitely a wine for aging, we are curious to see how it
    changes over the next 9 or 10 years.

  8. Château Des Charmes

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

    1 x 375 ml

    Chocolate cake, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    Cabernet has acclimatized extremely well to the Niagara Peninsula so it is a good candidate to make into Icewine. We tend these blocks of Cabernet like the others carefully managing the yields and of course keeping the bunches clean by removing any berries at the first signs of breakdown. Then we wait. And in late January, when the temperature dropped to -13ºC we hand-harvested the bunches by the light of the moon.

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.
