Sleepless in Sendai
Nothing can quite capture the beauty of cherry blossoms blooming in Sendai, Japan’s City of Trees. But while sakura season springs forth with sheer beauty, the flowers soon flutter down to the ground and die—a reminder to slow down, enjoy life, and cherish time with friends and family. Perhaps over a glass of this soothing, subtly floral rosé made with preserved sakura, plum blossoms, cascara, star anise, and sandalwood.
