Shipping Weather

A winery in Napa shipped their wines out this week. It's 80-85 degrees in the afternoon in SoCal this week (takes two days to arrive). Would you be concerned? The Fedex truck is not temperature controlled. I was surprised when I got the shipping email alert. No harm in waiting a week.
