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.

2007 Arietta and sake

Drinking at a friend's home.

Kakunko Junmai Daiginjo Yamawatari (花薫光  純米大吟醸  山渡), 2007 - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 27%.  Nose was very fermented, very oxidized, definitely a koshu (古酒).  Pale straw color.  Savory and mineral on the nose, with beeswax and acetone.  Very soft on the palate, and a little sweet.

2007 Arietta On the White Keys - very ripe, lots of tropical fruits like mango.  Not too sweet on the palate.  Still got acidity and a little grippy.
