The first wine we had out of it was an entry level Finger Lakes Riesling (Hermann Weimer) and it brought out the absolute best in that wine. We've upped the wines since and this g...

I've frozen wine several times and have always felt it the wine was similiar in taste/aromatics to the first night. The wines I end up freezing are usually solid mid-priced wines (i.e. $20-$40 range - variety of styles) as the higher end wines we drink never make it to the next night.
