World Sake Challenge Reviews

Cedar River 2015 Junmai Sake
90 points
$25
Bright pale light silvery straw color. Delicate, savory, fruity aromas and flavors of honey rice candy, melon, Asian pear and leaves, and nougat with a soft, bright, bone-dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, easy fleur de sel, roasted parsnip and potato, and jicama finish. A wonderfully savory sake that will shine with tempura.

Bright clear pale white gold color. Delicate, woody aromas and flavors of melon, jicama and bamboo shoot, nutskin, and brewer’s yeast with a soft, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a seamless, complex, medium-length apple custard, nougat, and delicate spiced pineapple finish. A pleasant, casual sake for everyday enjoyment.

Fuki  Plum Wine
85 points
$9.99
Light golden straw color. Lively, fruity, nutty aromas and flavors of maraschino cherry and marzipan with an even, vibrant, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a smooth, compelling, medium-length honeyed plums finish with fruit tannins and no oak. A sweet fruity plum wine with nice purity of flavor.
