  1. $239.88

    Cortes de Cima

    Alentejo (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    12 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese


    "Mid but deep cherry red. Lifted and sweet dark-red and black fruit – a mix of cherry and blackberry – with a slight smokiness that might be a touch of reduction or perhaps just the Syrah. Lovely fruit with just a touch of pepper. Vibrant and juicy on the palate, this is not complex but it is a terrific mouthful of fruit and freshness. Light but sufficient tannins. Very good value and surprisingly persistent."

    Quinta dos Roques

    Dão (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    12 x 750ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "The 2016 Tinto is a blend of Touriga Nacional (50%), Jaen (20%), Alfrocheiro (15%), Tinta Roriz (10%) and Tinto Cão for the rest, all aged for ten months in used French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. The 2016 vintage was what Luis called a real Dão year, less full-bodied than the 2015s and with more acidity. Well, acidity is sure not too low here. This has gorgeous aromatics and intensely flavorful fruit, but what makes this pop on the palate is the acidity that lifts and frames the fruit. It's not a big or fleshy wine, but the structure is excellent and the flavors are irresistible. The silky texture is sensual. The tannins are relatively ripe, so you can drink this now, but it is just a little tight. I'm not entirely sure this has enough flesh to develop much—concentration is not the strong point here—but the acidity will surely preserve it. This will still be fine in a decade. This is another very fine value from Roques this issue, in a very graceful style. There were 50,000 bottles produced."

    Dos Lusiadas

    6 x 750ml

    Pasta, Red Meat


    In 2009, Rhone super star Michel Chapoutier picked out a plot in the Douro Valley. A small – very small – plot of 3 hectares, but full of promise: Eleivera. Here, the winters are tough, the summer a long, dry heatwave. To get sufficient output, Michel Chapoutier joined forces with local producers incredibly honest and pure representations of this region, which is a Unesco world heritage site. The bouquet shows intense with aromas of flowers, exotic fruit and red fruits. It is elegant with mineral notes. The palate is soft with a nice structure. There is a good weight and depth. Well balanced and fresh. The finish is long with the floral notes that linger. > Learn More

    Casa d'Arrochella

    Douro (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "This sumptuously rich wine has the ripest black fruits along with solid tannins. The juicy acidity is what gives the wine its balance and that will develop as the powerful wine matures further."

    Quinta da Pellada

    Dão (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    12 x 750ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "The 2016 Touriga Nacional Quinta de Saes was aged for 18 months in well-used French barriques and comes in at 13% alcohol. This is meant to be a lighter, more elegant Touriga than Castro's top-level wines. It is from youngish vines (12 years) in the Caniças vineyard. Elegant and light it most certainly is, but it has beautiful aromatics and flavors. Maria Castro says she always has a hint of geraniums from this vineyard. I get more blue fruits and violets (another reason why I like to avoid certain descriptors). Decide for yourself. The structure is modest—you can drink it now—but it has enough to support it well for several years, and it has a fresh feel. While it may well hold a decade, drinking it in the short to mid-term is a good idea. This is a great choice for a house pour. It can't be called a profound Touriga, but it is a great "starter Touriga," if I could put it that way, that gives you a glimpse into what this grape can be, classic in all respects. This is a reasonable value in a wine that is approachable, but with just a bit of distinction."

Here, the winters are tough, the summer a long, dry heatwave. To get sufficient output, Michel Chapoutier joined forces with local producers incredibly honest and pure representations of this region, which is a Unesco world heritage site. A clear, deep black with sustained crimson highlights. A powerful nose, showing dark fruit at first, along with some “garrigue” and spicy notes. Aromas of fruit (cherries, prunes) macerated in “eau de vie” can also be detected. The whole is underpinned by mineral notes (graphite) that bring a great deal of freshness. Full on the palate supported by impressive velvety structure. There’s flesh, weight and depth, all rounded off by an incredibly long finish. The dark fruit comes through again, giving a crisp sensation underpinned by nice mineral tautness that endows this wine with freshness and remarkable balance. > Learn More

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.
