An alcoholic beverage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcoholic_beverage) renowned for its flavor and potency. It has been mentioned that Blood Wine is twice as strong as Earth whisky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisky). Few non-Klingons drink Blood Wine because of its potency. Klingons often drink Blood Wine when celebrating after a battle and while trading war stories. Klingons expect their Blood Wine to be served warm. Whether it actually contains blood is unknown to Trekkies, though in formal ceremonies, a participant will add his or her own blood by cutting their hand above the wine. (For example, some Spanish wines have "Sangre" (blood) in their names; it is possible the Blood Wine contains no blood.)

It was a non-alcoholic preparation for the cure of kidney-liver diseases. A typical quack medicine.

I was using the 19th century definition not the 24th century.

I think blood wine was a liquefied beef and alcohol mix. This iron drink would make the weak strong just like a Klingon.
