Yuki No Bosha Yamahai Junmai "Cabin in the Snow"
The nose on this "traditionally" made sake is a collection of cooked rice, cream, chestnuts, cocoa and mint tones. This is a very balanced and tasty Yamahai that is solid and richly confident. There is a gentle sweetness of powder sugar, honey, sweet nuts, and milk chocolate that rides on a round body with a quick finish. Dig deep amongst the candy bar flavors and find a vein of mint hidden in the creaminess. Just a very well balanced and a supremely drinkable Yamahai that shows a little acidity in a larger vessel. WORD: Flavorful WINE: Bordeaux/Deep Whites BEER: Creamy Belgians FOODS: Big dishes as well as small, from grilled to raw.
