Wine fans who have not discovered Sake yet are missing a trick. But it’s understandably intimidating with a whole new language and names. This sake is a great place to start. It’s mellow and full-bodied and will match dishes like oven-baked salmon and hearty meat dishes. Other styles may be more refined but this is richly satisfying.
