Midweek drinking thread (21st to 24 Dec)

YAY can’t believe I have managed to create a thread upon the mighty TWS community site thingy, at such a time of excess, good fortune and joy. Or something like that.

Tonight, TWS “The Liberator ‘The Good, The Bad and The Sangiovese’, Western Cape 2003” a truly awful name (and label) for a rather good wine. At 17 years old; you get a wine heading towards an antique mahogany colour, a nose like a light vintage port / dirty aquariums, and tastes like an old wine that isn’t too far gone yet still quite drinkable with the Nebbiolo etc coming through clearly.

I appreciate that might not sound too enticing… but to old wine aficionados, it’s like catnip.

With Steak and kidney pudding, buttered spring greens.

Wonder if somebody could usefully merge this thread and the Christmas drinking thread so that they are not running in tandem on much the same subject.
