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.

Sake and Cali

Dinner at Nikushou.

Ohmine Junmai Ginjo 2grain (大嶺純米吟醸2粒) - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 48%.  Smooth, soft on the palate, slight hint of dryness, and some fermented flavors.

Ohmine Junmai Daiginjo 1grain (大嶺純米大吟醸1粒) - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 38%.  Smooth, softer on the palate than 2grain, but actually surprisingly dry and spicy.

2004 Harlan The Maiden - decanted for a little more than one hour.  So sweet and full of blackcurrants, like blackcurrant Fruitips.  A little earthy, a little smoky, which gradually emerged.

2014 Ulysses - decanted for almost 2 hours.  Very alcoholic, lots of iron rust, a bit of dried herbs, a bit of smoke.  Definitely sweet on the nose and on the palate.  Very oaky, eucalyptus, and waaaaaay overripe.

Full post on dinner is here.
