Kokuryu Junmai Ginjo "Black Dragon"
A tantalizing nose filled with hints of roasted coffee, mint, salt water taffy, tropical flowers, grapes and honey. This extremely well balanced sake achieves the near impossible of being both expansive in character and clean in feeling. There hints of fruits, minerals, and caramel but also peek-a-boo layers of grains and umami. Almost sweet and savory at once with a dry quick finish. WORD: Big Clean WINE: Merlot/Pinot Noir/Sauvignon Blanc BEER: Blond Ales/Hefeweizen FOODS: Anything Grilled!
