Monthly WTF wine group meet up. Theme was “bring something good”. All wines (minus the bubbles and SB) were tasted blind.

This was opened after the BS was corked. Needed only about 30mins to blow off some funk and then settled in as expected. Not funky, and not as much iron as I would have thought. The fruit is all stewed and muddled, mainly red and black fruits, with red clay, oregano, and chewy fig. Drink up.
