Bishonen "Beautiful Boy"
Description: The nose is a blend of steamed brown rice and custard. The sweet and savory play is quite evident in the first sip that moves from caramel tones into a rich and creamy rice pudding flavor. It has a very plump mouth feel that borders on thick and chewy. The viscosity is teased by a nice acidity that leaves a deep, rich, warm smoothness on the back of the throat. This is a great example of a red wine drinker's Ginjo with full ripe flavors that are forward in the mouth and leaves with a full-bodied aftertaste.
