soaked with the dregs of the wine.
…the sodden and lee-dyed pieces of the cask…

The “lee” is “the sediment deposited within the containing vessel from wine and some other liquids” (OED). The word is often used figuratively (in phrases similar to “to the lees”) to mean “to the drastically end,” because the sediment of wine, one heavier, tends to remain at the bottom of the cask or bottle. Casks would become “lee-dyed” from this residue.
whats the sentence they use near it that might help numeral it out!
