ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
Tamagawa “Red Label”
Not for the timid, this is one powerful bottle. A yamahai-style junmai, it is brimming with acids and amino acids. This is in its first iteration (it's soap opera name would be The Bold, Young, and Beautiful), and you can also enjoy the same sake aged, as "Vintage," or as "White Label," where it tests the limit of fermentation. (Tests the limit of fermentation?!?! If that doesn't give you goosebumps, well, you have ice running in your veins.) Definitely try all three side by side as a flight of fancy one day if you ever get a chance. It's basically history and science class rolled into one.
