This Week's Sake Selections
Featuring some rare brews and a wide variety of flavors 

Noguchi Naohiko Muroka Nama Genshu
Honjozo (Ishikawa)    Extremely limited: Brewed by one of the “Gods of Saké Brewing.” Mellow gold tint with aromas and flavors of spiced apple and cinnamon. Tingling and lively with terrific balance and full of umami – flavorful, but not overwhelming, and not at all overpowering at 18% ABV. A special bottle for special times -- Saké Nomi times.
$80/720 ml bottle; $25/4 oz. pour

Junmai Ginjo (Iwate)                                                                      Rusty goldish green coloring with green apple, pear, vanilla and citrus aromas and flavors. The clean minerality of the water is nicely expressed, as is the just right acidity and harmonious balance. Pasteurized just once, it has a soft, gentle texture, but is still very "hearty," and not as delicate as one might expect from a junmai ginjo brewed with local Gin Ginga rice milled to a daiginjo level 50%. $55/720 ml bottle; $16/4 oz. pour

Daiginjo Genshu (Niigata)                                                            Herbal, almost vegetal nose, with notes of roasted nuts. Good, solid body, with a touch of genshu heat (@18% ABV). Beautiful, elegant packaging and image. This is the undiluted genshu version of this brewery's Asahiyama Manju Daiginjo.
$48/720 ml bottle; $14/4 oz. pour

Junmai (Iwate)                                          Greenish gold coloring, with notes of almond and roasted nuts in the nose. Also pasteurized just once, the flavor profile tends toward the rich, earthy end of the spectrum, with noticeable body and umami. Brewed with local Gin Ginga rice milled to a junmai ginjo level of 60%. $45/720 ml bottle; $14/4 oz. pour

Kotsuzumi Hanafubuki “Shower of Blossoms”
Junmai Ginjo (Hyogo)             
Pronounced dandelion gold tint. Soft, inviting mouthfeel, showing flavors of young tart fruit and apple peel on the palate, leading to the dry, lingering finish. All of Nishiyama Shuzojo’s gorgeous labels were designed by celebrated Japanese artist, Hirosuke Watanuki. 
$40/720 ml bottle; $12/4 oz. pour

Zuiyo “Lucky Hawk”
Junmai (Kumamoto)                                          Earthy, herbal aroma.  Light-bodied with mineral notes and a clean, slightly dry finish.  Sharp, layered, and complex. Name comes from story about a hawk landing at the brewery on New Year’s Day; a sign of good luck. $30/720 ml bottle; $10/4 oz. pour
