St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Hmmmm...dried prunes, touch of currant and ripe red berries with a sublime undercurrent of grassy earth and forest-y shit. Ate some Hokkaido uni with it. Would eat a whole goddamn tray with a bottle....wait sounds like my weekend plan! — 20 days ago

Kawatsuru Oseto Tokubetsu Junmai from Kagawa Prefecture. Female Toji (head brewer) at the kura.
