Akeno Yamanashi Red Blend 2017

A bit of an eye opener. Good structure and freshly picked red fruit. Tannins are there but this was very approachable. The level of Japanese wines continues to improve! — 4 months ago

Yamanashi Cabernet Franc 2016

Japanese wine with shabu-shabu (Japanese hot pot)! Can’t go wrong. For me, this cab franc lands somewhere between the Loire and Napa. More restrained and a bit fresher than typical new world fruit. — 8 months ago

I love this stuff. I had their saison in Vancouver once and couldn’t find the stuff anywhere in New York again until two weeks ago when it was on the menu at a late night ramen bar that’s only open from 11 PM to 4 AM. Only in New York lol

SS, I can get it in NJ for you. Domodomo also sell it. I think a good beer outlet in Manhattan will stock it. Let me know if you need me to scoop some up for you.

Thanks Ron! I’ll check my nearby beer store, or maybe just plan to do Domodomo’s omakase in the new year and pick up some then. Thanks for offering and the tip

Sauvignon Blanc 2009

It had stored in the cellar of Chateau Mercian's Katsunuma winery for 10 years. So it was good condition and has beautiful ageing characters. It perfume well, very stractured body with yeasty and nutty nuance. also has very sharp mineral. — 8 months ago

First experience with Japanese wine. Lacking fruit, but plenty of acidity. Curious
