Cave D'Occi


Comes across as a Sangiovese rose with slight effervescence at the start. A mix of herbaceous, earthy notes along with a bit of light floral sweetness. Still on the dry side on the palate. Fun expression of Sangiovese in Japan. — 6 hours ago

Star Filled Sky Junmai Ginjo Sake

Unique style of intentionally-aged (3yrs) sake. Rich and rounded fruit flavors: poached apple, baked pear, melon, apricot jam, stale spice. Dry and not nearly as oxidized as I expected. — a day ago

Super Dry Draft Beer

Hate to admit it, but this was so good. There's a running joke where I used to work - only the Asian's know that proper beer should taste like... Nothing. Can't be truer here. Ice cold, crisp, and light-tasting, this can was perfect after a long work day and intense leg session. So much for post workout recovery, but it sure as heck hit a spot. "The beer for all seasons" indeed. Well-played, Asahi 👏 Well-played. — 14 days ago

Beau Paysage

Tsugane le vent Yamanashi Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

A clear benchmark for beautiful Japanese Cabernet Sauvignon. Earthy, forest floor notes followed by dried dig and berries. Lush and fresh, yet somewhat restrained. — 12 days ago

No So2 which could be a factor. Color a lot more developed than the wine shows on the palate.

Green Ridge Junmai Ginjo Sake

An all time favorite. Nose and palate of gentle, confectionery notes like mild anise and cream that seem almost like fruit. Lush mouthfeel. — 6 days ago
