    Barrel Burner

    California (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful example of Cabernet from California, leading with enticing aromas of brambly fruit, cassis and vanilla. On the palate, ripe dark fruit flavors are accented by hints of toasted oak and subtle savory notes. Balanced tannins and a full-bodied structure add to the pleasurable mouth-feel, further enhanced by the wine's long lingering finish. An all around great choice for charcuterie or hearty foods like grilled burgers and prime rib, this rich, fruit-forward wine proves that Cabernet is the king of California.

    Caymus Vineyards

    California (USA), Suisun Valley (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    Suisun (su-soon) Valley, which lies to the Southeast of Caymus, is only a 40-minute drive and is similar to Napa Valley 40 years ago. With its warm days and cool nights, the region is known for delicious stone fruits and walnuts – increasingly, it is also gaining recognition for its wine. Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah, the widely grown grape in the region – Chuck added “Grand” to the name of Suisun-grown Durif because he doesn’t do “petit”. With lush textural tannins, this wine is rich, supple and totally enjoyable.

     

    A velvety purple with ruby-red highlights, the 2017 vintage of Grand Durif features an abundant one of dark plums and baked blueberries, woven with scents of lavender, white rose petals, sweet smoke and brown spice. Entry on the palate is smooth, yielding to a pop of high, luxurious tannins that then sneak back, revealing lush fruit flavors of dark berry cobbler. What gives this wine its singular character are the tannins - strong yet supple, pronounced while being strikingly soft. The finish is long, with warm, evocative notes of unsweetened cocoa. Still quite young, this vintage can be enjoyed now and also has tremendous aging potential.

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.
