Den's 2014 Shincha Kunpu Tasting Comments:
This year’s Kunpu brings calm and fresh flavors. When I took a first sip, I thought the flavor was a little mild, however while sipping, that fresh flavor grew and gradually the taste became quite deep. The cup is well balanced with grassy aroma, natural umami and aftertaste all in harmony.
