I donít know that I was enlightened enough to write 1000 poems like the fabled poet, but maybe a haiku or two in appreciation of the rich mouth feel, the honeydew and kabocha, and the clean finish. A delightful; sake to pair with spicier pan Asian dishes. On a side not, I was recently given the opportunity to taste this sake as a Namazake, or unpasturized, and it came out decidedly meaty, wild, and bready by comparison. It was an eyeopening tasting that proved namas are not always better than when they are tamed by pasturization.

An exceptional Sake with lots of complexity. The Wandering Poet has a wonderful melon and citrus quality with a hint of anise in the finish. It is one of the best balanced Sakes that we have.
