    Fiuza

    Portugal (Portugal), Tejo (Portugal)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Structured and still young, this rich wine is full of dusty tannins as well as dark black fruits. Blending Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon has given a wine with excellent aging potential. Firm and concentrated now, it needs to age until 2020."

    Andover Estate

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Andover wines are pure expressions of their varieties and the singular terroir of our estate vineyards. This Pinot Noir is high toned, open and perfumed with intense aromatics and layers of ripe red fruit. Flavors of strawberries, raspberries and cherries blend elegantly with an underlying stratum of vanilla from 12 months of aging on French oak. The tannins are soft and silky and the finish is elegant and graceful. Arroyo Seco is a remarkable sub-appellation that consistently yields a deep and compelling Pinot Noir.

    Pago de la Jaraba

    Castilla La Mancha (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Viña Jaraba Cosecha is produced from a cépages of eighty percent tempranillo and ten percent each of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. It sees only four months in a combination of French and American oak casks prior to racking into tank and eventual bottling. The wine offers up a very good bouquet of black cherries, cassis, a bit of cigar smoke and a nice base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and shows good mid-palate depth, with a bit of backend tannin and good length and grip on the finish. This is not overly complex, but it has depth and plenty of personality and sells for the princely sum of ten dollars a bottle here in the US, so it is an excellent value! 2018-2025+."

    Colinas do Douro

    Douro (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "Produced from old vines, this blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz is rich and dense. It has firm tannins at this young stage although it is obviously going to become a generous rich wine as it develops. It has a fine future of complex structure and fruit."

    Isaac Fernandez Selección

    Campo de Borja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    “The 2017 Garnacha Tinto from Legado del Moncayo is nicely ripe, coming in at fourteen percent octane and delivering a classic varietal nose of black raspberries, roasted venison, pepper, garrigue, a touch of celery seed and a complex base of stony soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and impressively soil-driven, with a rock solid core, ripe tannins and a long, tangy and very well-balanced finish. This is an insanely good value at $11 per bottle here in the states and reminds me of when Châteauneuf du Pape was the bargain in French wines back in the early 1980s! It is approachable today, but will also age very nicely and will be even better with a few years in the cellar to let the tannins soften up a bit more. A great value! 2019- 2035.”

    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

Harvested in the late fall to allow for maximum ripening this powerful wine displays rich, bold flavours. Notes of vanilla and spice from aging in oak barrels compliments the profound fruit flavour of black currant, raspberry and plum.

    "This 17th-century estate is on the plateau of Lussac, with 12 acres of silica and clay soil. The wine has a smoky edge along with perfumes from the Cabernet Franc in the blend. Its berry flavors, ripe tannins and cinnamon touch are rich and promise some good aging."

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.
