    Cave Spring Vineyard

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Pelmeni Dumplings, Red Meat, Risotto, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    This wine is burgundy in colour with garnet hues to the edge. On the nose, spicy notes of cloves and cinnamon along with penetrating red berry fruit are at the forefront, with earthy undertones in behind. The palate combines bright raspberry and Bing cherry fruit, crisp but well-integrated acidity and great intensity and persistence of flavour throughout. There is a definite gaminess and a hint of white pepper that lingers very long on the finish. All in all, this cooler vintage has delivered a classically-structured Pinot of considerable complexity.

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "Very attractive dark-berry and dried-flower character with some cedar and walnut. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins and a fresh finish. Plenty of fruit. Drink or hold."

    Frecciarossa

    Italy (Italy), Lombardy (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    This hand-harvested Barbera spends it's natural fermentation in 6 months of stainless steel and is then transferred to French oak barrels and allowed to age for 10 months, followed by at least 12 additional months in the bottle prior to release. The wine shows an intense, deep ruby red color with purple highlights. The nose is ample with notes of ripe fruits and hints of spice. Harmonious on the palate, full-bodied and well-balanced with ripe, elegant tannins.

    Domaine Frederic Brouca

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    This single-vineyard blend of Grenache, Syrah & Mourvedre offers a perfect combination of balance and power. Rich dark fruit and savoury roasted meat notes pop from the glass. The flavours are vibrant with a brooding symphony of red, blue and black fruit, peppery spice and a long, clean finish. Pair with hearty winter stews, grilled lamb chops or enjoy on its own.

    "Grenache is emphatic but still plays fairly with the syrah and carignan on the palate of this undeniably charming, organically produced blend from Frederic Brouca. Offering a little funk among the flavours of red fruit, liquorice and pepper on the palate. Energetic, authentic and sensitively made. Mid-weight and surprisingly juicy. Effortlessly enjoyable."

  5. New Cabernet Franc Select VQA by Big Head 2017

    $660.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Veal roasted


    A plush nose of dried cherry, dried raspberry, cacao and dried leaves. On the palate, the wine is full of ripe red berry fruit, juicy acidity and sweet tannins that linger and finishes dry. There is a perception of sweetness on the tongue, but that’s just the fruit character and higher alcohol. Pairs wonderfully with grilled red or game meats but the wine can be appreciated on its own.

  6. New RAW Merlot VQA by Big Head 2019

    $780.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Fresh Fruit, Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta with Tomato Sauce, Red Meat, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, White Meat


    The nose is complex and deep, requiring reflection. Ripe and dusty black and red berry fruit, plum, vanilla, and cardamom, surprising since zero oak touched this wine at any point. The only wood was the cork used to seal the bottle, which arguably contributes some character. There is also a gaminess that develops as the wine breathes. In the mouth, the tannins grip tight, and persist. The wine is dry, yet ripe, and the elevated alcohol sweetens the finish. Decant this wine for several hours and enjoy in larger glasses. As with all of our Merlots, I would recommend aging.

  7. New Cabernet Franc Select VQA 1.5L Magnum by Big Head 2015

    $200.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 1.5L

    Breads, Cured Meat, Foie gras, Hard Cheese, Pasta with Tomato Sauce, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    A little quiet, but opens up quite easily with a decanter and a couple hours. Black and red cherry, smoked bacon, sage, graphite and a bit of vanilla. This is a serious Cabernet Franc, and meant for serious Cabernet Franc lovers. The palate is dense, with plenty of structure, length, and depth. The finish is very long. This is a wine that would reward patience. If you can’t wait, then decant, serve slightly cooler than room temp, use big glasses, and then indulge in strong cheese, a cigar, or some artisanal dark chocolate

  8. New Biggest Red VQA 1.5L Magnum by Big Head 2015

    $245.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 1.5L

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    It’s back. A haunting nose on this beastly wine showing ripe and dried red and black fruit. Cherry, raspberry, blackberry, with sweet cigar box and just a touch of roasted red pepper to remind you that this is a Cab dominated blend. On the palate, the wine is dry and hits all the bases. The tannins coat your mouth, but they are ripe and supple. This wine is juicy, yet powerful and the flavours are long. I would serve this a little cooler than room temp (cellar temp would be ideal) so you can sense the subtle complexities without the alcohol getting in the way. Grilled red meat that has been dry-aged would be the perfect pairing and I would splurge on a ribeye or porterhouse as this wine is special, and deserves to be matched with something special. Please enjoy.

  9. New Cabernet Sauvignon VQA 3L Jeroboam by Big Head 2013

    $310.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 3000 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Foie gras, Red Meat, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Veal roasted


    “Our first Cabernet Sauvignon on it’s own, this example shows plenty of dark red fruit, with sage and tea leaf undertones. The tannins are still a little tight, but a couple hours of decanting will remedy that. Open it, pour a glass, leave it for a couple days. Magic. Another red meat candidate. This time striploin or porterhouse come to mind. Sorry vegetarians, tempeh and soy won’t stand up to this beast (see what we did there?)".

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.
