  1. $275.88

    James Mitchell

    California (USA), Central Valley (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Full bodied and fruit forward, this robust and flavorful wine is all about honest to goodness ripe blackberry and dark cherry, warm spice, smoky mocha and vanilla from oak aging. The tannins are well integrated and the finish is nice and long. It goes down great with a juicy steak, barbeque ribs or a soul satisfying hamburger.

  2. $287.88

    Hayes Valley

    California (USA), Central Coast (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "High quality fruit right off the top in this Central Coast cabernet sauvignon to elevate the regional game. A wine that clearly has the substance, aromatic intelligence, palate density and structural capability to speak a more sub-regional or sub-appellative language in labelling. A cru or specific area at the very least. This is exactly what you want, even if the edges are a bit rough and tumble and the wood gives off just a little bit too much vanilla. Splitting hairs here because there is so much varietal truth and completion to go on. Drink 2021 -2025."

    90 Points. Value Rating: 5 Stars! ~ Michael Godel, WineAlign, March 2021

  4. New Biggest Red VQA by Big Head 2017

    $840.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    There is a combination of fresh and stewed red fruit with an herbal and peppered undertone. You can also notice a hint of oak, but only in a slight tobacco leaf and it finishes with a molasses savouriness.

    In the sommelier world, we would describe this nose as “lifted”. Whether it is the alcohol or the slightly elevated volatile acidity, which is natural for appassimento wines, there is a power to this wine that isn’t just fruit concentration. There is a combination of fresh and stewed red fruit with an herbal and peppered undertone. You can also notice a hint of oak, but only in a slight tobacco leaf and it finishes with a molasses savouriness. The palate is quite dry, and the tannins grab hold, and the fresh red berry fruit is also layered with umami and a touch of salinity I assume from the Petit Verdot. This is a monster wine that needs decanting and leaving the decanter somewhere cool to make sure you don’t go over 18ଂC.

  6. New Bigger Red VQA 3L Jeroboam by Big Head 2013

    $310.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 3000 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    “Despite it’s softer, plusher reputation of the Bordeaux grapes in the rest of the world, we have experienced that Merlot is a tight and grippy SOB. We have 100 cases of 2012 Merlot that we don’t plan on releasing until 2022 (We hope). It is definitely the majority stock-holder in this blend. Red, blue, black fruit along with meat, spice and vanilla are hold together tightly. “Leave me alone” it screams. Decant, a lot. Cigars and dark chocolate and sub-zero temperatures are all I can think of.”

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.
