Kiminoi Emperors Well

Winemaker's Notes:

"A prototypical Yamahai nose filled with earthy, gritty, ricey, shroomy, grainy elements with a waft of creme brulee. And yes the flavor matches the aroma as this deep and layered sake has a gamey attitude that is full and robust. Look for flavors such as rice and grains that blend into a gentle earthiness with a vein of vanilla. A Ginjo that tastes like rice – how novel! Velvety, gutsy, and complex this brew is bold and yet subdued. More richness comes out at room temp and so does a peek-a-boo view of marshmallow. WORD: Gamey WINE: Deep Dark Reds/Huge Whites BEER: Stouts FOODS: A game griller special, chops, sausages, mushroom risotto.

Rich aromas, complex flavors, and an elegant clean finish.
