Fruity aromas and flavors of pineapple chunks in a cedar cowl, fruitcake, pink peppercorn on key lime, and guava herb tea with a silky, crisp, fruity full body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long pineapple kefir, spiced melon, and pepper finish. A bright, tropical junmai ginjo bursting with flavor." Jul 2019
