Taiheizan Kimoto Junmai "Great Peaceful Mountain"
This is a traditional, old-method sake that would appeal to the American palate. Welcoming and rich, it has a big, creamy nose with sides of banana and vanilla. It’s soft and rolling, with expansive flavors hidden in a clean and delicate finish. A huge bite of flavor offers up all sorts of mouth feel—chewy, syrupy, wide—with hints of nuts and a subtle backdoor fruitiness. WORD: Plush WINE: Pinot Noir/Hefty whites BEER: Chewy FOODS: Tomato-based dishes, grilled meats, smoked fish
