Having recently purchased a couple dozen bottles on recent wine tasting trips... and living in Southern California (where indoor, summertime temps can be in the 90's for weeks on end)... I'm looking into purchasing a wine refrigerator to keep my beloved reds intact.
My question is -- once a red goes into the wine cooler -- how long can you keep it there? is it equivalent (or better?) to regular wine cellar storage? and when you are ready to use said bottle - how long do you find yourself leaving it out until it's drinkable temp?
