Look for pear, persimmon, ginger, cinnamon, powdered sugar, green fig, mild peach, saline, with a touch of pastry dough flavors that jump with a little astringency as it warms. WORD: Raw WINE: Deep Reds/Spritzy Whites BEER: Pilsners FOODS: Sashimi, sushi, tempura, chicken karaage, fried and grilled fish, marinated pork, shabu shabu hot pot, and grilled oysters.

The nose of this seasonally released unpasteurized Nama sake has an AMAZING nose filled with peach, white grape, powdered sugar, apple, rose water, watermelon, and the "smell of a sake brewery in the morning" aroma. Say hello to Hanahato! This first time released Nama is a very fun and expressive sake that walks the walks. It is Nama Nama, lively, brash, zesty, flavorful, with a lot of frisky fun that is spritzy and real raw sake. Juicy, smooth, and chewy each sip is more like a bite with a quick finish that appeals to red wine drinkers. Look for green apple, young peach, pear, mint, kiwi, quince, blackberry, persimmon, sweet rice, lime, and a ton of umami expressions. Fleshy, weighty, lush and lively, this baby is a mover of flavor and feeling that is amplified with a wine glass. WORD: Lively WINE: Zesty Reds/Fat Whites BEER: Stouts FOODS: International spice, sweet, cheese, salumi, and fruit plates, beachy grilled fare, and tacos. (2022)
