Some Ginjo sakes today are too prissy, clean and lack a confidence found in Four Diamonds, which has a nose filled with fruity tones such as watermelon, banana, grape, blueberry pie, and strawberry. This is a very solid Ginjo Genshu (undiluted sake – no not unfiltered! – undiluted with an alcohol content at 18%) filled with fruit tones that get more rich as the fluid warms in the glass. Plump, fleshy, plush, chewy and yet semi-dry with licks of honey, honeydew, and strawberry compote. The elevated acidity speaks to wine drinkers who like adventure in a glass, and Ginjo sake drinkers beware of this velvet hammer.  In wine speak the acidity offsets the large fruit qualities, but in sake speak yum! WORD: Confident WINE: Big fruit forward reds/Fat whites BEER: Rich ales FOODS: Cuisine with attitude and expressiveness, spicy, International flare.
