    Cave Spring Cellars

    Bright aromas of blackberry and raspberry mingle with notes of tarragon, mocha and licorice on the nose. Medium in body, the wine is nicely rounded up front and displays a complex harmony of fine-grained tannins, smoke, dark chocolate, mint and cassis in the middle. The finish displays a refreshing and lengthy mix of fresh black currants, cedar and fresh herbs.

    Creekside Estate

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

    6 x 750 ml

    Roasted Vegetables


    Laura’s Red is the namesake of our founding owner, and we’ve been bottling versions since 1999. You could say that this elegant and rich Bordeaux-styled blend was what first put us on the map as a producer of consistently fine Niagara red wines sold at a fair price. The key to maintaining that quality in the region’s ever-variable vintages lies in the art of the blend. We tinker with proportions of the component varieties to hit the same flavour profile year-in, year-out. We hope it hits your targets too!

    A selection of the best plots from 35 to 50-year-old vines, La Chaintree is aged 24 months in neutral 500L oak barrels.

    “We find here the same righteousness and freshness that in the Rogelins, but with a more discreet tannic grain, a more open fruit. The palate is balanced. This winemaker has a real idea of what are the elegance and nuance in the cabernet franc.” - Four Stars - Revue des Vins de France 2003

    Henry Of Pelham

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

    6 x 750 ml

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


    The Speck Family Reserves hail from the estate’s oldest vineyards in the Short Hills Bench, shovel planted by the Speck Brothers starting in 1988. These thirty-plus-year-old vines are among Canada’s oldest of any consequence. This age further restricts the yield per vine while adding in even more complexity of flavour. Typically the SFR wines are composed from their most interesting, dry-farmed vineyards, which enjoy southern exposure. All vines are clonally selected except in a few special cases where the plantings are old enough to predate this practice, making these unique vineyard blocks an opportunity to add qualities that cannot easily be reproduced.

    2012 was a vintage of the decade for reds, the best year since 1998. The summer was long, warm and dry, creating excellent ripeness and sugar levels.

    Concentrated dark fruit tones balanced by black raspberry nuances. A hand-picked blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot where yields were restricted to less than 2 tonnes per acre and aged in French oak barrels. This wine will improve with 7 to 10 years of cellaring.

    Château Des Charmes

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

    1 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Veal roasted


    This flagship red wine, Equuleus is a classically styled blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. But Château des Charmes don’t make it every year. To be considered an “Equuleus year” each of the three grape varieties must have achieved at least 23.5º Brix at harvest. The 2012 vintage was awarded the Ontario Wine Awards “Red Wine of the Year” in 2017. Aged for 16 months in 1/3 new French oak, 2/3 in non-new French oak then the blend rests in French oak casks for several months. The result is rich and complex with flavours of cassis and dark chocolate. Equuleus is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for at least another 5-10 years.

    Redstone Winery

    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

    Castell d'Encus

    Costers del Segre (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    3 bottles x Thalarn 2012

    3 bottles x Quest 2011

    "The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

    95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Feb 2014

    Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.

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.
