Choryo Yoshinosugi Omachi Taru Yamahai Junmai "Cedar Country"

The nose on this very elegant cedar sake is filled with cedar, vanilla, mineral, and roasted rice aromas. Wow! Talk about a cedar sake that doesn’t drink like the cedar element is right in your face. This very smooth, round, and gentle “taru” sake is one of the best balanced cedar sakes out there. There are smoky, roasted rice flavors, but it’s the cedar whispers that take the day. It’s not too zesty or fake woody like other taru efforts, and it’s not bold or heavy! It’s the opposite with a lower alcohol content (14.5%) and a gentle Omachi rice flow. There is a subtle complexity that gets more “woody” in a larger glass. Good chilled. Good at room temp, and really nice warmed! WORD: Balanced WINE: Deep reds/Oaky whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: The brewers recommend seafood, meats, teriyaki chicken, and I say try burgers.
