DEN Junmai NamaNA31

The nose on this small brewery craft sake is made up of green apple, powder sugar, sweet corn, and melon aromas. First of all, I LOVE typing Oakland for this review! Secondly, this sake drinks like any sake that you would find made by the best breweries in Japan. You are not “taking a chance” on this sake, but you are missing a chance to taste an excellent Muroka Nama Junmai if you don’t. Den drinks round, smooth, and full of rich flavors on a lively fluid that is very well balanced. Look for hints of vanilla, steamed rice, asian apple pear, and a lick of honey. There is a very nice acidity play that makes the sake pop even though it is on the rich side. This bright flavor full-bodied brew does well in a white wine glass, and it is lower in alcohol at 14%. WORD: Rich WINE: Deep reds/ Complex whites BEER: Full-Bodied Ales FOODS: Full-bodied fare, meats, fowl, game, international spice.
Prefecture: Oakland, California

Note: Because namas are unpasteurized, they must be kept chilled. We will only ship out these types of sake under your own risk. We highly recommend store pick-up or local delivery only which you can select when you go to checkout. All sales are final for Nama items once they leave our store.
