Urakasumi Junmai Ginjo "Zen"JG08

Four Hot Words: Layered, Shimmering, Historical, & Complex
Zen is one of the great benchmark sake that has not changed in flavor and feeling over the past two decades. It is an historically important sake that was first produced to take to Europe to introduce the west to excellent sake. The nose is a rich collection of butter, steamed rice, and a hint of mint. Rich, round, and solid this sake speaks to red wine drinkers. Very smooth and velvety and one of the best balanced sake in the business. Learn the term “savory” with this brew and look for hints of milk chocolate, sweet nuts, rice pudding, and rich nougat flavors. If you’ve never tried Zen then you haven’t tasted one of the classic sake in the history of this ancient libation. WORD: Balanced WINE: Complex reds/Dry whites BEER: Rich Belgian Ales FOODS: Seafood, shellfish, oysters, pasta, and stews.
