This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Kokuryu Ryu

Dinner at Ishikawa in Tokyo.

Kokuryu Daiginjo Ryu (黒龍 大吟醸 龍) – with a seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 40%. Kokuryu is one of my absolute favorites, and one can never go wrong with this particular offering. Classic nose of banana and tropical fruits. Full-bodied on the palate – or as the Japanese would say, コクが有る – with a long finish.

Full post on dinner is here.
