Reply to "August 2018: What are you drinking?"

2015 Baudry Chinon Les Granges - Mrs. VeV exclaimed "It smells like armpits - in a good way if that makes any sense?" it does, and I like it.  Dont care who knows.

2012 Clos Ouvert Primavera - very funky/earthy/smoky.  Worked great with loads of galbi.

2015 Joan D'Anguera Altaroses - decanted for 2 hrs. wasn't thrilled with this bottle. Seemed to hit you with a bunch of tannin then this hollow midpalate that follows disappoints, then some fruit pokes through. not sure if this bottle is representative of what it could be, but i'm going to keep my hands off the others i have for some time in hopes that it finds some semblance of balance.

2015 Mercouri Estate Antares - 60% Avgoustiatis/40% Mouvedre from the Western Peloponnese.  Warm climate wine, no hard edges.  Nice dark/black fruit profile with coffee notes and some mourvedre funk.  Nice wine, interesting to try.
