Isojiman Omachi Tokubetsu Junmai
The nose on this sake from one of our favorite breweries is a stellar collection of butternut, beets, green beans, minerals, and rich rice aromas. This is a professional sake personified, and if you are following the path of the rice varietal called Omachi it’s important to try this awesome version. Ripe, full-bodied, rich, and frisky look for lots of flavors from honeydew melon, white grape, crisp apple, a young pear, and a heaping helping of Umami qualities. It is a very layered brew that has vocal rice tones on savory flow that thickens as it warms in the glass. Rich and zesty in a single glass is a great accomplishment, and this sake will win you over on the palate feel. WORD: Rich WINE: Complex Reds/Zesty Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Grilled fare and anything from the Bar-B-Q and anything on a stick.
