The 2018 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon features a deep red color, with aromas of black plum and dark chocolate. The palate is medium in weight with a juicy and soft finish. Serious enough for the connoisseur and friendly enough for the casual wine drinker, this wine will pair well with a range of dining options, from marinated beef kabobs to pasta. Enjoy in its youth, or cellar for up to three years.

"Extremely well balanced and appetizing, this screw capped wine combines absolutely fresh black-cherry flavors with mild oak accents and energizes them with good fruit acidity and moderate tannins. It is medium to full bodied, and will make a lively pairing with a wide variety of dishes."

"Produced by the Duckhorn Wine Company, a robust red wine blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot, 3% Zinfandel and splashes of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah matured in French oak. Rich with generous black and blueberry fruit, smoky vanilla, mocha and savoury herb flavours with balanced acidity. Tannins are firm but manageable. Enjoy with grilled beef or lamb dishes."

“The 2017 Quintessa is an absolutely sensational showing in this vintage. Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Carmenére and 1% Petit Verdot, this begins with striking aromas of dark cherries and currants followed by spices, loam, dark cocoa powder, wild flowers, herbs and hints of baking spices all taking shape. On the palate this is full-bodied and structured with well-polished tannins framed by a beautifully touch of acidy providing a wonderful sense of freshness. Flavours of dark currants, baking spices and loam continue to leave a lasting impression on the supple finish. This is a total beauty that is drinking exceptionally well today, but also shows wonderful aging potential as well. 2020-2037.”

“Already bottled, the 2017 Quintessa displays a deep garnet-purple colour. The nose needs a little coaxing before it reveals bold, expressive notes of crushed red and black plums, black currant jelly, wild blueberries and kirsch with nuances of camphor, cloves, cedar and lilacs plus a hint of oolong tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautifully expressed, elegant red and black fruit layers, with a sturdy, grainy frame and plenty of freshness, finishing long and earthy.”
95 Points - Wine Advocate, October 2019
"Crushed berries, incense and blackberries with black-olive undertones. Extremely perfumed. Medium to full body. Very intense for a 2017. Crafted and polished. Long and caressing. Elegant. Drink or hold."

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.
