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 Bordeaux

Dinner at Neighborhood.

Rikyuume Junmai Ginjo Namazake Natsu Ginjo (利休梅  純米吟醸  生酒  夏吟醸) - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 55%.  Really fruity, lots of banana, musk melon, light and refreshing.  A little more dry when warmed up.

Iwa 5 - opened the day before serving as advised by a friend.  Seemingly a more "serious" sake, with more concentration and more body.  Not as easy to enjoy, and more dry on the palate.  Later on fruity notes did show up, with some musk melon notes.

2010 Domaine de l'A, en magnum - decanted 1 hour prior to serving.  Nice and ripe fruit, with fragrant woodsy notes, and some smoke.  Drinking very, very nicely.
