Description: This sake is made with the very interesting and unusually powerful Goriki brewing rice varietal and has a nose filled with chocolate covered cherries, caramel, and a nice earthiness. Talk about a “big” Junmai Ginjo that has great glass presence. Goriki is a multi-layered “elevator” brew that has unique flavors on each and every floor. Look for blackberry and other crisp fruit tones on one floor and deep rich chocolate on another. Not exactly a “sweet and sour” sake, but there is plenty of flavor movement as the sake warms in the glass and dances with the famous concept called “umami”. Complexity and elegance in the same glass and that’s nice!
