Kaze no Mori Tsuyuhakaze Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu NA42 "Black Label Wind of the Woods"

The nose on this sister sake to the “wind of the woods” is a killer collection of honeycomb, tangerine peel, honey tea, steamed rice, and orange blossoms. Bright, expansive, and immediate complexity; this is a “sake drinker’s sake.” Boom! It is a minefield of flavors and each sip is an exploration of the nooks and crannies found on the dark side of the sake moon. There are hints of citrus, persimmon, apricots, veggies, strawberries and cream, SweatTarts, and candied ginger. This is not a sake. This is a reward! So much damn excitement in the glass especially exploring the rice varietal called Tsuyuhakaze, which is only grown locally in Nara, and is milled to 80%. Sometimes “complexity” is code for brewing confusion, but not this “Black Label, which is an exercise in the best a complex sake can get. A large glass makes for more layers of flavors, and do not hesitate warming this “Nama” unpasteurized brew. WORD: Rewarding WINE: Crisp Reds/Juicy Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: International spicy fare, game, fowl, meat, smoked fish, pasta.
Prefecture: Nara
SMV: ±0
