5. Remove the interior packing material and wipe out the inside of the unit with a clean, water-dampened cloth.

Rotate Front Legs to Adjust

Rotate Clockwise to raise rear leg.

Rotate Counter-Clockwise to lower leg.

3. Confirm the unit is level after each adjustment and repeat the previous steps until the unit is level.

INSTALLATION TIP

If the room floor is higher than the floor in the cutout opening, adjust the rear legs to achieve a total unit rear height of 1/8" (3 mm) less than the opening’s rear height.

Shorten the unit height in the front by adjusting the front legs. This allows the unit to be gently tipped into the opening. Adjust the front legs to level the unit after it is correctly positioned in the opening.

LOOKING BEHIND THE LABEL

To most, wine is a delicious mystery. We purchase it, uncork it, and savor its taste and beauty. But there is so much more to true wine appreciation. Many secrets are simply too good to keep bottled up.

WINE SELECTIONS SUGGESTIONS

Selecting the right wine for the right occasion can sometimes be a seemingly awkward or difficult task for the beginning wine enthusiast. We would therefore like to present you with a few suggestions which may provide a little more confidence and enjoyment when choosing and serving your wines.

When selecting wines, keep an open mind and do not be afraid to be adventurous. Do not view the subject of wine so seriously it discourages you from learning and discovering for fear of embarrassment if something is incorrect. Wine is best viewed as a hobby and enjoyed.

When assembling your collection, try not to become obsessed with “Vintages.” Although a chart can be a useful tool, generalizations about a specific year have led more than one collector to disappointment. Often an “Off Year” will provide a better value and more drinking enjoyment.

Matching Food and Wine

Although there are no hard fast rules for matching wine to food, observe some guidelines. Delicate dishes should be accompanied by lighter more delicate wines. Full-flavored foods should be matched with fuller-bodied wines.

The primary guideline to the subject of wine is your own palate. Do not be afraid to make mistakes. Experiment, discover, but most of all, enjoy yourself and your new U-

Line product.

As a general rule, one should aim to ascend in flavor and quality of wines served.

Serve a:

DRY wine

WHITE wine

YOUNG wine

LIGHT-BODIED wine

Before a:

SWEET wine

RED wine

OLD wine

FULL-BODIED wine

Any step back in quality will be noticed. If a fine wine is tasted prior to a lesser wine, many of the fine wine’s subtle qualities may be missed.

The Cork: A Mystery on Its Own

Cork Presentation. The ritual of the presentation of the cork has a rich and fascinating history dating back to the late 1800’s. A phylloxera (root louse) devastation to the vineyards severely limited the supply of great wines.

Restaurateurs would remove labels on inferior wines and replace them with labels from superior wines. This made it necessary for patrons to protect themselves by checking the branding on the cork to ensure that what they ordered was, in fact, what they were served.

A Toast to Wine Truths

Like the grapes themselves, many wine myths have been cultivated over the centuries.

Myth 1: Most wines taste better when aged.

When presented with a cork today, feel it to check for its integrity, read and match the branding on the cork to the bottle and set it aside. There is little to be learned from the cork. The proof is in the wine.

Truth: In fact, less than 5% of wines produced today are meant to be aged. Most wines are crafted to be consumed within the first one to two years.

Myth 2: Wines should be uncorked and decanted allowing them to “breathe.”

Truth: To breathe or not breathe? While it is better to allow a young tannic Red to breathe in a glass or decanter to soften the tannins, an old Red reaches a stage in its life where it should be enjoyed soon after opening. Allow an old Red to breathe for a short time to dissipate any off odors. Most white wines can be served, ideally, 10-15 minutes after opening.

“Corked” wines. If you’ve ever had a wine that smelled or tasted of mold, you’ve experienced a wine that may have been “corked.” Today, between five and eight percent of wines are tainted with Trichloroanisole (TCA). This substance, found naturally in plants and trees, is imparted to the wine through the cork. Corked wines are a major concern for winemakers as it destroys millions of cases per year and puts reputations at stake. Amazing as it may seem twist-off caps may offer a better alternative and many great wineries in California, Australia and New

Zealand are pioneering the trend.

Myth 3: When age worthy wines peak, they must be consumed almost immediately.

Truth: Most great wines reach a plateau period rather than a peak. Great Bordeaux’s may have as much as a

10-year plateau before fading.

Myth 4: Wine color does not change with aging.

Truth: As red wines age they get lighter in color while whites get darker.

Full-Bodied

Oaky

Tannin

Description

A critical element of wine that is responsible for preserving the wines freshness. Excess acidity results in an overly tart and sour wine.

A desired trait where tannin, fruit and acidity are in total harmony. Wines with good balance tend to age gracefully.

The weight and presence of wine in the mouth provided by the alcohol and tannin level. Full-bodied wines tend to have this strong concentration.

The blending of a wine’s aroma within the bottle over a period of time, caused by volatile acidity.

A subjective term often used in tasting. A wine is said to be complex if it offers a variety of flavors and scents that continue to evolve as it develops.

A wine that lacks structure, or is heavy to the taste, lacks acidity.

Wine high in alcohol and extract, generally speaking, fills the mouth, powerful.

Generally describes wines that are slim, lacking of generosity or thin.

A desirable flavor imparted to wine if done in moderation. Most wines are aged in oak barrels one to three years, thereby receiving this toasty oak characteristic. However, if a weak wine is left in contact too long with an oak barrel it will tend to be overpowered with an oaky taste.

Tannins are extracted from the grape skins and stems and are necessary for a wellbalanced red wine. Tannins are easily identified in wine tasting as the drying sensation over the gums. Tannins generally fade as a wine ages.

IDEAL WINE STORAGE CONSIDERATIONS

Temperature:

The most important element about storage temperature is stability. If wine is kept in a stable environment between 40°F (7°C) and 65°F (21°C), it will remain sound. A small 1-2 degree temperature fluctuation within a stable environment is acceptable. Larger temperature fluctuations can affect the corks ability to seal, allowing the wine to “leak” from the bottle.

Humidity:

The traditional view on humidity maintains that wines should be stored on their sides in 50% - 80% relative humidity to ensure cork moisture and proper fit in the bottle. Contemporary wisdom suggests that the cork surface is too small to be impacted by humidity. Further the cork is sealed with a metal or wax capsule making humidity penetration impossible. The concept of a humid storage environment was derived from the necessity of wineries to maintain moisture in their cellars to keep wooden barrel staves swollen, preventing wine evaporation and product loss. In fact, vineyards estimate as much as a 10% product loss per year due to evaporation while wine is aging in the wooden barrels.

Humidity, however, was not intended for the modern home cellar where wine is stored in glass bottles with sealed corks.

Light:

UV rays are not only harmful to people, they are damaging to wines - especially those in clear bottles.

Since oxygen molecules in wine absorb UV rays, wine should never be stored in direct light for long periods of time.

Vibration:

Provided that sediment is left undistributed and particles are not suspended, vibration in a storage environment is not an issue. Wines can become flat or tired when voids and vacuums are created inside the wine bottle. In order to create voids and vacuums within a liquid, aggressive motion or shaking of the wine bottle would have to occur.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
