96 • Kitanosho NV "Daigin-Nozomi" Junmai Daiginjo Sake $125/720ml.
Clear with a faint nickel cast. Aromas of cherry pastry, bubblegum dust, and honeycomb follow through on a soft, spry entry to a fruity-yet-dry light-to-medium body with superb purity and refined depth. Finishes with a extremely long mossy river stone, melon, and powdery anise cookie accented fade. A complex and elegantly styled daiginjo sake of the highest order. (tasted on Dec-03-2009)

Rather soft aromas display hints of anise, bamboo shoot, cashew brittle, and dusty apple skin and follow through on a soft, supple entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with cantaloupe and cherry notes. Finishes with a long, peppery spice and nut accented fade. A flavorful, vibrant, and intricately layered sake that will triumph at the table with a variety of cuisines. (tasted on Dec-03-2009)
