Re: What bottle of wine did you open today?

We opened a 2015 Salt Vine Cab. Wow! I loved it! It smelled amazing. The fruit was great. I let it decant for an hour and a half and It was a little tannic at first. But after about 30 more minutes it was amazing. My best bottle of wine so far this year. So good!

It was my understanding that frequent temperature change is not good for wines. Especially if it is fluctuating 11-12 degrees. It is probably changing temp every 30 mins or so.
That is correct. I reset my thermometer 2 hours ago. within the last 2 hours it has gone from 59 to 47 degrees.

I would be curious about the LIQUID temperature and not the AIR temperature, as it should fluctuate much less.

I had one the other night and it was a little young, but pretty dang good for a sub $15 bottle. So, I bought 2 more to hold for a year or so.
