Wakatake Onna Nakase Junmai Daiginjo "Makes Women Cry"
The nose on this is a collection of oatmeal, cooked grains, steamed rice, cantaloupe and chestnut elements. The name of this sake translates to “makes women cry” and for good reason, as the complexity and drinkability of this sake is second to none. This brew drinks rich and round with a long tail. So many flavors on so many levels such as raisin, dry figs, vanilla, nougat, brown sugar, overly ripe fruit, and a touch of breakfast bar. A true red wine drinker’s Daiginjo with a full-bodied personality and a long finish, which does better in a larger glass. More rich and creamy characteristics come forth as it warms. Warming this sake makes a nice rich and bright drinking experience. WORD: Complex WINE: Bordeaux BEER: Large ales FOODS: Savory dishes, grilled fish and chicken, exotic sushi rolls, rich sauces.
