I've found tons of resources on wine, beer, spirits, bourbons, mixed drinks, etc etc..
I have yet to find anything on Sake. Technically it's a 'wine' but it's made from fermented 'rice'. I'm guessing it might be near what 'white wine' would be but I'm not really sure. Comments?

Given that even wine has fructose( bad for us) and even those rice is the least offensive grain lectinwise and likely loses antinutrients to fermentation...
They're both therefore only slightly bad and in moderation have been shown to have positive benefits such as lowering blood pressure 1-2/day
my advice, don't sweat the minimal difference between 2 near identical poisons drink the one you prefer
I enjoy my glass of red almost every night, I say it's for the potential health benefits, but I enjoy it, and I'm so healthy otherwise that I think I'll be ok even if it is bad for me.

according to my calorie/carb counter book:
4 fl oz Sake at 16% alcohol contains 125 cal and 5g carb
4 fl oz dry red wine averages 80 cal and 2g carb
4 fl oz dry white wine averages 75 cal and 1g carb
Given that sake is essentially a fermented rice beer (made from grain) rather than a wine (made from fruit), my guess it's not too primal at all, it's just delicious.
