It has a soft, but alluring floral fruit (Peach, Starfruit, and Pear), with a hint of vanilla and a touch of rose petals aromas. A lightly golden-yellow color with dancing tiny bubbles also delights the eye as well as the palate. A beautifully seductive yet crisp finish rounds out this delectable, graceful sake. The perfect choice when you raise your glass and give a toast to good friends, family, and those colleagues who have supported you through this long 2018.

Sequoia’s founders have created a new barrel-aged sake where American frontier spirit meets Japanese tradition. We start with our Junmai Ginjo Genshu sake then age it in American bourbon barrels for 3 months. This unique process allows for a complex integration of flavors. Sequoia’s Genshu brings out the dried fruit flavor, infusing vanilla and smoky-molasses to create a complex, yet still delicate, sake. This is a one of a kind sipping sake to be savored and shared.
Appearance: Pale amber-gold in color.
Aroma: Up-front in the nose with big bold smoky-molasses and subtle notes of vanilla brought on by the American oak with just a mellowing of cocoa.
Palate: Dry, moderate-plus bodied with savory bourbon-like tones on mid-palate. The finish is fresh with sustained, well-rounded dried fruit, lingering just long enough to let you know this is sake, smooth all the way.
