Buy Red Wine Online

Wine Deals makes it easy to buy red wine and have as many bottles as you want shipped right to your door. We stock a vast selection of red wines, from inexpensive bottles to some of the best-regarded in the world.
Just type the name of any wine, region, or grape variety into the search box, and browse by name, rating, or price. Or you can browse by grape type (and more) using our convenient left-hand navigation.

How Is Red Wine Made?

The process of producing red wine, also called vinification, starts with the collection of ripe red or black grapes. These grapes are then sorted, crushed, and de-stemmed to create a mix of grape juice, skins, and seeds called “must.”
Unlike in white wine production, the grape skins are not separated before fermentation but are left in contact with the juice throughout fermentation.

This critical difference imparts the red color and contributes tannins and flavor compounds to the wine. Following fermentation, the wine is separated from the skins and seeds through pressing, then aged in barrels or tanks to develop complex flavors. Finally, the wine is filtered and bottled.

The entire process influences the final product, from the type of grapes to the choice of aging vessel. The methods can vary widely depending on the grape variety, the region, and the winemaker's style.

What Does Red Wine Taste Like?

Red wine's flavor profile can dramatically differ, influenced by numerous elements such as the grapes, the cultivation location, and the methods employed in winemaking. Generally speaking, reds are associated with robust, rich notes, but they can also showcase refined and understated nuances.

Red Wine Flavor Profile

Flavor characteristics diverge greatly among different grape types. For example: 

Cabernet Sauvignon is commonly recognized for its robust body and tannins, with hints of dark fruit like black currant, plum, and cherry. 

Merlot, in contrast,  tends to be milder and medium-bodied, with red fruit flavors like cherry and raspberry. 

Pinot Noir is on the lighter side and boasts tastes of red fruits like strawberry and cranberry.

The geographic origin of the grapes significantly influences the wine. For instance, grapes grown in cooler vineyards often yield wines with higher acidity and more delicate, nuanced flavors. In contrast, those cultivated in warmer climates tend to produce a fuller body and ripe, pronounced flavors.

Lastly, the method of winemaking is a crucial factor. One notable aspect is the usage of oak barrels in the aging process, which can imbue the wine with distinct notes of vanilla, toast, and smoke.

Understanding Red Wine Types

There are several ways to categorize red wines, but it's advantageous to consider the dominant grapes. Typically, the wine will have one main grape variety blended with lesser quantities of other grapes. Those where a single grape variety constitutes over 75% are called varietal wines or just varietals.

For example, bottles from the Pessac-Leognan region are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon but may also contain smaller quantities of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
Each grape type brings a unique flavor and texture:

Cabernet Sauvignon: Known as the "king of red wine," Cabs are full-bodied red wines. The grape is grown worldwide but is famously associated with the Bordeaux Left Bank. They have flavors of black currant, mint, chocolate, and cedar, and pair well with red meats like beef and lamb.

Merlot: This medium-to-full-bodied wine is also famous in Bordeaux, France, particularly the Right Bank. It's known for its soft, sensual texture and flavors of plums, black cherry, violet, and orange.

Pinot Noir: This light-to-medium red wine is known for its silky texture and light tannins. Pinot Noir is most famous in Burgundy, France, but it is also grown in California and New Zealand. Its flavors include cranberry, cherry, and raspberry.

Syrah/Shiraz: This full-bodied red wine originates from the Rhône Valley in France but is also grown in Australia, particularly Barossa Valley, where it's known as Shiraz. It has flavors of blackberry, mint, black pepper, and roasted vegetables.

Zinfandel: This medium-to-full-bodied red wine is mainly grown in California. It's known for its zesty flavor with a hint of berry and spice. In Italy, the same grape is known as Primitivo.

Grenache: Grenache is a full-bodied red that originates from Spain, where it's known as Garnacha. It's also commonly grown in the southern Rhône Valley in France. Grenache is known for its high alcohol content and flavors of red fruit and spice.

Nebbiolo: Nebbiolo, a full-bodied, dry red wine from Italy's Piedmont region, is used in the famous Barolo and Barbaresco wines. It has the aroma of roses, cherries, and truffles, with high tannins and acidity.

Petite Sirah: Despite its name, Petite Sirah is a distinct variety from Syrah and is known for producing vibrant, full-bodied wines. Originating from France, it's now primarily grown in California. Petite Sirah is known for its deep, inky color and robust blackberry, blueberry, and dark chocolate flavors, often with a peppery kick.

Tempranillo: A medium-bodied red from Spain, most famously in the Rioja region. It features flavors of plum, blackberry, cherry, dried fig, cedar, leather, and tobacco.

It's worth mentioning that many Old World wines do not display the grape variety on the bottle. The mix of grapes each region uses is standardized, and wine enthusiasts are expected to know the grapes used in each region. 

Don’t worry, though, as you'll find full details of the primary grape used in every bottle on the Wine Deals site, and you can filter results according to the grape variety.

What Are Red Blends?

Most Old World wines are often a blend of grape varieties, with the types of grape determined by standards bodies like the Italian Consorzio di Tutela and the French Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée. However, the term “red blends” is typically used for U.S. blends.

They combine two or more red grape varieties grown in the United States. They can be made from various grape types, but common ones include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Zinfandel.

These blends allow winemakers to create a complex, multi-dimensional wine that brings together the best characteristics of each grape. The flavor profile of a U.S. red blend can vary greatly depending on the grapes used, but they are often rich and robust, with notes of black fruit, spice, and sometimes oak.

U.S. red blends are produced throughout the country, with notable regions including California's Napa Valley and Sonoma County, Washington State's Columbia Valley, and Oregon's Willamette Valley.

Grapes and Wine Glass

What Are Tannins?

Tannins are naturally occurring compounds from grape skins, seeds, and stems. They can also be introduced through aging in wood. These compounds are significant in winemaking because they contribute to the wine's color, flavor, and structure.

On the palate, tannins create a drying sensation, often described as astringency. They add complexity and balance and contribute to a wine's longevity. The presence of tannins can create a heavier, more structured wine.

In terms of tasting notes, wines with high tannins might be described as having fine tannins or as tannic, robust, or chewy. Wines with lower tannins might be described as smooth or soft.

What Is the Most Popular Red Wine?

Cabernet Sauvignon is often considered the most popular red wine globally. This is due to its widespread cultivation across wine-producing regions and broad appeal among wine enthusiasts. Cabernet Sauvignon has gained a substantial following among wine lovers because of its rich character, high tannin content, and flavors of black currant and cedar.

It's particularly well-loved in areas like Bordeaux in France and Napa Valley in California, but its popularity extends worldwide.

What Pairs Well with Red Wine?

Red wine pairs well with various foods depending on the specific type. Here are some general pairings:

Red meat: Red wines, especially those with a full body like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, pair excellently with red meats such as steak and lamb. The robust flavors of the wine complement the rich, savory taste of the meat.

Poultry: Lighter red wines like Pinot Noir or Grenache pair well with poultry dishes like roast chicken or turkey.

Cheese: Many red wines, particularly medium-bodied varieties like Merlot and Zinfandel, work well with various cheeses. The wine's acidity and tannins can balance the fat and protein in the cheese.

Vegetarian dishes: Vegetarian dishes featuring mushrooms, lentils, or eggplant can be well-matched with red wines. A Tempranillo or a light-bodied Pinot Noir can be a good match.

Pasta: Pasta with red sauce or meat-based sauces pairs well with Italian reds such as Chianti or Nebbiolo.

How Should Red Wine Be Served?

Serving red wine involves a few key steps to ensure that you enjoy it at its best:

Temperature: Red wines are best served between 60-65°F (16-18°C). Lighter-bodied reds like Pinot Noir can be served on the cooler end of this range, while fuller-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon are better a bit warmer. If your wine has been stored at room temperature, place it in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving to reach the ideal temperature.

Glassware: Use a clear, stemmed wine glass with a generous bowl. These glasses allow the wine to breathe and help to funnel the aromas to your nose. Pour into the widest part of the glass to allow for optimal aeration.

Decanting: Some red wines, particularly high-tannin or older wines, benefit from decanting. This process aerates the wine and can help to create soft tannins and enhanced flavors. To decant, slowly pour the wine into a decanter and let it sit for 15 minutes to 2 hours before serving.

Preservation: Once opened, red wine should ideally be consumed within 1-3 days. Store open bottles in the refrigerator to slow oxidation. When you're ready to drink it again, let it return  to the proper serving temperature.
