Diary Entry #22 - Canepa Novisimo 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

Yesterday was Wine Wednesday so I thought it was appropriate to do another vlog! Since it has been awhile, I felt a bit rusty and it took far to many takes to finally end up with the one that I'm posting here below...oh well, I never did say I was perfect!

So this wine in the vlog is also by Canepa (the last vlog I did was also a Canepa wine). This one is their 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. It was actually quite smooth. I found it to be more medium bodied compared to a lot of the big Cabernet Sauvignon's you might typically find out there. This one I found a bit lighter than the 'norm' so that's why I would say it's medium bodied. It has a nice lingering finish with nice fresh berries and plum notes on the pallet.

I think this wine would be a great wine for sharing with friends as I think it's friendly enough for everyone to enjoy. It would be great for the upcoming dinner parties and Christmas parties (yes, I said Christmas and I know it's only November...)

If you have tried this or do try this wine, please let me know what you think! Hope you enjoy the video!

Diary Entry #21 - Canepa Novisimo Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Hey wine lovers! Here is the latest vlog! It's Canepa's Novisimo Sauvignon Blanc 2011. It's about $12 at BC Liquor stores. 

Canepa's little saying is 'Canepa Wine. Italian Soul. Chilean Soil.'. Canepa winery was started back in the 1930's in Chile by an Italian man named Jose Canepa. Canepa was also the first winery in Chile to start using stainless steel barrels in the 1980's. The most outstanding milestone for the winery was back in 1979 when their Finisimo was recognized 5th in the Wine Olympics (I didn't even know there was a Wine Olympics!).

The Novisimo wines reflect the diversity if chiles soils and climates. These wines are young, fresh and fruity wines with concentrated aromas and colors. This wine is the Sauvignon Blanc, in the following weeks I'll be tasting their Novisimo Cabenet Sauvignon and their Novisimo Carmenere. 

Here is the video for the Sauvignon Blanc...the other two videos will follow soon!

Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed it. And please, if you do go try this wine or have already tasted it, let me know what you think! Your feedback is always valued.

Cheers,
