Description: "Zen" is a giant in flavor and feeling. The nose is an eloquent blend of wood and strawberries. A very elegant forward flavor branches into a smooth ending with a mild aftertaste. A wonderful shimmering roundness plays in this well-built Ginjo that is respected all over Japan. It is lively and dynamic with a subtle hidden fruit factor and a beautiful rich viscosity. This is a connoisseur's Ginjo that speaks!
