Iwate Meijo Oshu no Ryu Junmai Daiginjo "Midnight Dragon"

Junmai Daiginjo
The nose on this stalwart Daiginjo is a grand collection of pear, grape, melon, cream, rock sugar, apple pie, and fig aromas. Smooth, round, velvety, lush, and full-bodied this brew drinks royally with a dry finish. The Midnight Dragon is a rich umami driven creamy Daiginjo that is built to pair with fine cuisine and is extremely drinkable by itself with round, fleshy, goodness and a short ending. Look for fig, raisin, apple pie, pear compote, banana bread, melon, powdered sugar, almond, grapefruit and strawberries and cream flavors with a hint of cocoa, black berry, and brown sugar tones that glide on a full-bodied flow. A very refreshing brew that is layered, rich and elegant. WORD: Smooth WINE: Round Reds/Creamy Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, Champagne fare, complex shellfish dishes, meats, and fowl.
