    Winemaker Notes

    Shimizo-No-Mai Pure Snow is slightly cloudy in appearance. Melon aromas with notes of cucumber and a hint of pear. It has a powerful flavor with distinctive texture accompanied by notes of ginger, Asian pear, and cantaloupe. It's smooth and finishes soft-sweet to dry.

    Shimizo-No-Mai
    Small family sake breweries, dating back to 1656, came together in 1944 to reestablish themselves as Akita Shurui Seizoh Company. The credo of the brewery is a simple set of beliefs: we value quality first, we are one with the land on which we stand, and our sake is a reflection of the toji spirit.

    Akita Shurui Seizoh Co. is located in Akita, Japan - one of the country’s top regions, known for producing excellent artisan sake. The brewery maintains this honor, and is proud to have won ten consecutive gold medals at the "National New Sake Awards," the only national sake competition in Japan. They are the only sake house in the history of this prestigious competition to have won this number of consecutive gold medals.

    Bordeaux Blends

    View all wine

    One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

    In the Glass

    Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

    Perfect Pairings

    Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

    Sommelier Secret

    While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
