Lol, my cellar is a fridge in the garage that I use exclusively for wine storage, I keep it on the lowest setting so it stays around 50 degrees. This trip pretty much filled it up with special wines, fortunately we have built in racks in our bar that will hold about 30 bottles of the everynight drinking reds, and we usually share a special bottle on the weekends.
I was thinking about buying a climate controlled cellar, if anyone knows about some decent ones that won't break the bank I'm all ears.

Actually there are quite a few being sold at places like Home Depot and Costco these days. Not sure about Walmart. Danby and Kenmore (Sears) are popular brand names. These are not the snooty versions of course, the ones that cost you arms, legs and first borns, but they seem to do the job and won't chill wines as cold as regular refrigerators.
Most look nicer too.

Funny you should mention the wine frig., I did a search last night thinking it would be a cool gift for my wife and I for Christmas, I ended up buying this one wine cellar
With an additional $25.00 off from Amazon, I thought it was a pretty good deal.

I have a friend in town who sells appliances out of a small shop, no big box store. I was looking at that exact fridge last year for another friend. The appliance store could not get rid of the things, no one was buying, so they priced them at cost which sad to say was a mere $199 Cdn.

Wow, I guess he should have put them on Amazon, the wine refrigerators seem pretty popular this year, many of the models were already sold out, the one I purchased was one of their bestsellers.

Drew, there may be some good suggestions for cab savs already in this thread, but if you want to start with a quality wine at a reasonable price, the Robert Mondavi Woodbrige cab is around $13 Cdn (so less USD) and excellent for its price. Another good cab standard is Wolf Blass Yellow Label. They are big sellers, popular, but they are lovely quality performers for their price.
Painter Bridge is a Californian zin that is similarly priced and quite lovely.

Best cab i've had yet to date, a 1994 Lindemans Coonawarra. Hard to find now.




Me and my fiance just tasted Wolf Blass yellow label and it is our favorite kinda on the sweet side though. Thanks for the recommendation.

Drew

The wife, kids and I are in the the Morrow Bay area at her brothers house, his new girfriend brought over an excellent Port from Robert Hall last night. Turns out she works for Robert Hall wineries, so today we will be wine tasting all through the Paso Robles area ending at the Robert Hall tasting room where she gets a 50% discount, I see at least a case going home with us

Out here in Okie-town we had a wine-filled holiday. I thought I should report that an Argentine malbec we picked up from a local (and excellent) wine shop was a great hit. If you can find a Kaiken Malbec (white and orange label), definitely pick it up. At only $14/bottle, it's easy to buy a case.

Catena is another good Malbec from Argentina. The 2003 in particular. They are about $20 per btl.

Come to think about it, I've been finding several good wines from Argentina and Chili lately.
