New Store Arrivals March 2005
For a limited time we still have the freshest Spring Released Nama sakes (unpasteurized) from Japan. Arguably these are the freshest sakes outside of Japan, and we are very proud to offer Nama sakes to you even before many Japanese can obtain them in their own homeland. There are four different Namas to choose from - Koshinohomare, Kamikokoro, Harushika, and Kaika - and they all rock!
I have also added a killer "Yamahai" sake (made in the traditional style with open-air yeasts joining the mix) from Akita that has really been floating my boat. It comes in the very cool Wakatake-style square bottle and has a wicked nose filled with nuts, wheat, powdered coffee creamer, and a hint of cereal in milk - no kidding! This nose translates into a subtle cream flavor in the sake itself that my wife claimed reminded her of cream sherry. I pulled hints of almonds and rice wrapped in a soft-spoken cocoa flavor. All together it is a semi-dry viscous sake with a rolling thickness that feels great, and is both chunky and chewy. A perfect Yamahai to explore the realms of a "wide" sake that welcomes all types of food pairings. Hiraizumi - Yamahai Junmai - From Akita Prefecture - SMV:+4 Acidity:1.9 $34/720ml with box.
