Comment:
Although the temperature is supposedly adjustable it really isn't. On it's warmest setting it is 59 degrees. On any other setting the wine freezes. It won't hold the heavy glass/taller bottles some of the very good California wineries (Shafer, Phelps, Duckhorn, Venge, Seghesio, etc.) use to enhance aging. Costs an arm and a leg to repair due to design. Some customer service reps are very good while others should be fired. I had their lower level for a number of years while living in Florida and it was a quality product. When I moved back north and built my new home I thought I would buy their best model. Boy, am I ever disappointed.
