Big Reds

Okay big red wine drinkers! You know who you are! You are the folks who not only like a chapter in your glass, you like the whole gosh darn book. Your wines are the massive reds that knock most newbies on their collective butts. Your wines are liquid complexity in a glass, and so too are these similar sakes. These brews have layers of big and robust flavors (often earthy and nutty) that speak your language. They are food-pairing aces that go well with most center-of-the-plate dishes. And often these sakes go well served chilled or room temperature, but in most cases can be warmed (try that with your wines NOT!). Think huge Sauvignon, Bordeaux, and other complex wines when selecting these powerful and extremely tasty sakes.
