Notes: Mr. and Mrs. Yamada brew this sake in a classic style in the same way their ancestors handcrafted it, continuing deep-rooted traditions. This is a very small producer and their sake in Japanese is called Mukashi No Manma or "unchanged by time". The rice is a local variety and it is milled 55%. The flavors are earthy with a touch of smoke. This sake is nice both cold and gently warmed.

....chooses the much richer, deeper Yamada Everlasting Roots with the Sea Urchin. Here the flavors and textures are bold and expansive on the palate. - Galloni tasting notes from dinner at Saison in San Francisco
