All our concern is to drink a good wine that we like at a fair price. Unfortunately, the price can be a hint but not the main indication of good wine. Otherwise, it would be very easy to find delicate wines. If you want to buy wine online, it becomes more sophisticated and harder as there are so many varieties.
There are a lot of reasons that make wine expensive instead of its quality. First of all, supply and demand is a very old economic rule, and speculations or trends can easily increase the demand, but supply can be limited, especially wines from some prestigious wine regions. That is not to say I suggest that you should avoid these regions; after all, if something’s famous, it is for a reason.
However, origin or demand is not the only reason for pricey wines; winemaking techniques like organic or biodynamic production, aging potential, and price policy of the winery are also other factors.
When we buy a bottle of wine, we pay for the transport, tax, duty, packaging, and at last, for the wine. If you prefer buying wine online which is very popular at these days, you will probably pay the least expensive price from a store and need to remember that online stores are the ones nearest to you. But still how to find the best wine at a fair price remain its mystery, but the list below can definitely give you a good idea.
Even though the wine selection is very diverse, we've compiled a list of the best red wines of 2021 that are easy to find and available for purchase online.
Clos de Los Siete, Uco Valley 2018-Argentina is our first selection, and it really deserves to be the first in many ways. This is Malbec added Bordeaux blend wine; Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc from world-renowned winemaker Michael Rolland, This well balanced full-bodied wine has very intense aromas of dark cherry, blackberries, prunes, plum and tobacco, and a smooth finish.
Tenute Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2018 is our second selection of best red wines of 2021. This super dry delicious wine comes from Sardinia, where Grenache is called Cannonau. Its intense dark fruit aromas give way to strawberries and dried flowers with salty minerals and earthy character. It would be paired very well with most of the tacos or could be enjoyed solo at the same.
Trapiche Malbec-Cabernet Franc Mendoza Iscay 2017, Malbec from Gualtallary and cabernet franc La Consulta is our third selection. This full-bodied wine has a strong nose of blackberries and herbs. It may take a few hours for all the flavors to emerge, but it's worth the wait. You can easily drink 2017 vintage now but in a few years it will definitely get better
Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from Napa. This is a family-owned winery, committed to crafting world-class estate-grown oaky wines for more than 40 years. This is a testament to how a mouthfeel Cabernet Sauvignon classic can be in Napa and one of thebest red wine in California. It has great red fruit characters like plums, cherry, currant, coffee, cocoa, and a hint of many spices with forest floor aromas.
Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County 2019 is our last selection of the best red wines to buy online. The wines of this unique wine-growing region always have good acidity, and pinot noir thrives in cooler climates like this region. This medium-bodied wine has well-rounded tannins, the nose is predominantly red fruits, vanilla, cinnamon with a long finish. Need to keep in mind that this wine will be very well balanced in a few years.
