World Sake Challenge Reviews

Cedar River 2015 Junmai Sake
90 points
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, breezy finish conveying notes of 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 finish imparting accents of apple custard, nougat, and delicate spiced pineapple finish. A pleasant, casual sake for everyday enjoyment.

Fuki  Plum Wine
85 points
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 finish imparting suggestions of honeyed plums with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A sweet fruity plum wine with nice purity of flavor.
