Give me another wine, stat!

Noticeable trademark petrol note which turns downright greasy when combined with the steady stream of bubbles. It had a heavily oxidized finish I wasn’t too fond of. Not awful, but I won’t be overly eager to seek this one out again. Took me 3/4 of a glass to decide it wasn’t a keeper and dumped it out. Harsh? Perhaps, but I have 135 bottles at home, so I can’t afford pity. What do you do with unwanted wine?
