Japanese Sake

We feature a great line of sake brands from the company Ippongi. This company comes from Chef Satomi's hometown of Fukui prefecture in Japan. The owners Josh and Satomi have visited the brewery and established a great relationship with them, even visiting the company's caves deep in the mountains where they age some of their sake.   

Denshin is a popular line of award-winning sake which features a variety of premium grades of sake. 

Denshin Yuki (Snow)

Yuki is a delicious smooth junmai ginjo that is great on its own or with lighter chicken and fish dishes. This is one of our particular favorites! "Yuki" is meant to allude to a winter's first light snowfall, clean and crisp.

Ippongi Dry (Karasawa-kei)

This is Ippongi’s award winning clear and dry Junmai Ginjo. It is made with 100% Fukui sake rice that has a very clean finish to cleanse and refresh the palate.

glass / bottle  

Hannya (Demonizing Woman)

Hannya is a spicy plum sake that is quite unique and addicting. Similar to a liquer, it should be sipped slowly to enjoy the sweet, savory, and spicy elements to it. 

glass  / bottle 

Ginkobai Plum Sake w/ Gold Flakes

Ginkobai is some of the best plum sake (umeshu) out there! The sweetness of the plums are balanced by a nice acidic backbone that helps round out the flavors. When we visited the brewery we saw them stirring the brew with fresh local plums from Fukui.

Wine

Although we do have a small selection of wine, we have chosen only delicious wine from small family farms that pair well with our dishes.

Bohigas - Brut Reserva - Cava - ‘NV’

Publication: Wine advocate

Rating: 90

My favorite of the two sparkling Cavas is the non-vintage Brut Reserva Cava. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years. A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Doug Polaner is his name, and high quality wines in all price ranges is his game. I have been tasting with Polaner over a number of years, and these notes represent his very finest value selections.

 

Temperamento - Bobal - 2014

Temperamento

UTIEL-REQUENA, SPAIN

bodegasierranorte.com

Temperamento is made from the Bobal grape grown in Utiel-Requena. The D.O. of Utiel-Requena is located in Valencia in south eastern Spain. This area has a very warm Mediterranean climate, but the vineyards here are moderated by being at very high altitudes.

Bobal is the indigenous grape variety to this area and can be a very challenging variety to grow. Its vigor must be curbed in order to produce quality wines. Bodegas Sierra Norte which makes Temperamento, has very old vines of Bobal (many exceeding 60 years of age) that it farms organically near the town of Camporrobles.

 

 

Pajot

”Quatre Cepages” - Sauvignon Blanc Blend - 2016 ​

This  Bergerac and Southwest French wine comes from an oak-free zone and the blend of four grapes (Colombard, Ugni-Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Gros-Manseng). This makes for a vivacious and refreshing, dry white wine that is very easy-drinking.

Ovid Line North - Riesling - 2016 ​

Juicy peach flavors with a good acidic balance are the characteristics of this great Riesling from the nearby Finger Lakes.  

 

Michel Guignier - Beaujolais - Gamay - 2016

Rating: 90+

The 2016 Beaujolais from Michel Guignier is a beautifully vibrant and classic example of its appellation, jumping from the glass in a superb blend of cherries, sweet cranberries, fresh herb tones, a fine base of soil and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, crunchy and fullish, with a good core, lovely transparency, tangy acids and impressive length and grip on the complex finish. This is lovely juice that will be even better with a year or two in the cellar. 2017-2027.
