Matching Food and Wine
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.
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.
As a general rule, one should aim to ascend in flavor and quality of
wines served.
Serve a:
Before a:
DRY wine
SWEET wine
WHITE wine
RED wine
YOUNG wine
OLD wine
LIGHT-BODIED 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.

of all, enjoy yourself and your new U-Line product.
A Toast to Wine Truths
Guide To Common Styles Of Wine
Red Wines
Like the grapes themselves, many wine myths have been cultivated
over the centuries.
California
French
Italian
Zinfandel, Cabernet
Rhone, Chateauneuf-duPape
Barbaresco, Barolo
Medium-Bodied Dry
California
French
Pinot Noir
Bordeaux, Burgundy
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.
Light-Bodied Dry
French
Italian
Beaujolais
Chianti, Bardolino
Myth 2: Wines should be uncorked and decanted allowing them
to "breathe."
Full-Bodied Dry
California
French
Chardonnay
Montrachet, Meursault
Puligny-Montrachet
Medium-Bodied Dry
California
French
Sauvignon-Blanc
Pouilly-Fuisse, Sancerre,
Vouvray, Graves
Light-Bodied Dry
French
Chablis, Muscadet, PouillyFume
Myth 3: When age worthy wines peak, they must be consumed
almost immediately.
Full-Bodied, Very Sweet
Germany
Frency
Hungary
Beerenauslese
Sauternes
Tokay
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.
Medium-Bodied, SemiSweet
California
Germany
Gewurtztraminer
Liebfraumilch
Myth 4: Wine color does not change with aging.
Light-Bodied Off Dry
Germany
Rhine, Mosel, Riesling
Truth: As red wines age they get lighter in color while whites get
darker.
Full-Bodied Dry
White Wines
8
Myth 1: Most wines taste better when aged.
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.
U-Line Wine Guide
The Cork: A Mystery on Its Own.
Ideal Wine Storage Considerations
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.
Temperature: The most important element about storage
temperature is stability. If wine is kept in a stable environment
between 40°F and 65°F, 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.
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.
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.
Common Tasting Terms
Terminology
Description
Acidity
A critical element of wine that is responsible for
preserving the wines freshness. Excess acidity
results in an overly tart and sour wine.
Balance
A desired trait where tannin, fruit and acidity are
in total harmony. Wines with good balance tend
to age gracefully.
Body
The weight and presence of wine in the mouth
provided by the alcohol and tannin level. Fullbodied wines tend to have this strong
concentration.
Bouquet
The blending of a wine's aroma within the bottle
over a period of time, caused by volatile acidity.
Complex
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.
Flabby
A wine that lacks structure, or is heavy to the
taste, lacks acidity.
Full-Bodied
Wine high in alcohol and extract, generally
speaking, fills the mouth, powerful.
Lean
Generally describes wines that are slim, lacking of
generosity or thin.
Oaky
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.
Tannin
Tannins are extracted from the grape skins and
stems and are necessary for a well-balanced red
wine. Tannins are easily identified in wine tasting
as the drying sensation over the gums. Tannins
generally fade as a wine ages.
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.

Wine Stocking Recommendation
Wine Rack Removal and Installation
Specially designed horizontal wine racks properly positioned the
bottles so the wine remains in contact with the cork and assure
the cork does not become dry.
To remove a rack from the cabinet:
1. Remove any bottles stored on the rack.
2. Grasp the end of the rack, and gently slide it out until it stops.
Stock the unit as follows:
1. Stock the wine racks beginning with the lowest rack, at the
back, and working forward. Stagger the bottles as shown.
2. Repeat Step 1 to stock the next higher rack, and continue until
all racks are filled.
NOTE: After stocking, allow unit to run 24 hours to
stabilize product temperatures.
3. Press the left rack release lever down. At the same time, lift the
matching right rack release lever up. Pull the rack out until it is
free of the tracks and the cabinet.
IMPORTANT
Do not remove the track rails from the cabinet.
To insert a rack in the cabinet:
Align the left and right rack channels with the tracks in the cabinet.
Ensure an even track engagement on both sides by gently pushing
the rack into the cabinet until it stops.
Before reloading the rack, ensure proper movement of the
travel stops in the left and right track rails by pulling the rack

U-Line Wine Guide
Wood Trim Finishing
Staining and final finish application:
WARNING
You MUST remove the wood trim from the unit for
staining or finishing to prevent permanent damage to
the inner liner of the unit. Allow stain or finish to dry
thoroughly (at least 24 hours for each coat) following
the product manufacturer’s instructions before
reinstallation. Not following this warning may cause the
inner liner of the unit to have a permanent odor, which
the warranty will not cover.
U-Line products featuring wine storage include wood-trimmed
wine racks.
Models with wood colored wood trim come factory coated with a
clear vinyl sealer without a finish coat applied, which will
sufficiently protect the wood in normal use. You may coat the trim
on the racks with stain or a final finish following these guidelines. If
using custom wood trim also follow these guidelines.
If staining the trim, stain before applying any final finish. Review the
following staining and final finish application and final finish-only
application guidelines when staining or sealing the wood to ensure
proper adhesion and durability of the finish.
NOTE: On glass door models the stain may look darker
with the door closed looking through the glass.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use oil-based stains on wood trim. Vapors from
oil-based stains will permanently penetrate the liner and
will not dissipate over time.
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and
remove the trim from the cabinet interior.
2. Lightly sand and clean wood.
3. Apply Minwax® Water-Based Wood Stain to wood with a
synthetic bristle brush or a foam applicator. Allow stain to
penetrate about three minutes. Before the stain is dry, take a
stain dampened rag and remove any excess stain remaining.
Wipe towards the grain with medium pressure to achieve the
desired stain color.
4. After two hours, repeat step 2. This will even out the color of
the wood.
5. Allow stain to dry for a minimum of three hours before applying
the final finish.
6. If desired, sand the wood with very fine sandpaper to smooth
the surface after staining.
7. Remove all dust from the wood, and apply one coat of Minwax®
Polycrylic® Protective Finish using a synthetic bristle brush to
the wood. Apply this finish in a thin coat following towards the
grain. Apply the finish to the back and sides of the wood first,
and allow it to dry for two hours. Apply the finish to the front
side of the wood next, and allow it to dry for two hours. Sand
with very fine 220 grit sandpaper. Apply two morel coats of
finish in the same manner, but do not sand the trim after applying
the final third coat.
8. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling the
trim to the cabinet interior parts.
Final finish-only application:
1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and
remove the trim.
2. Lightly scuff sand the wood trim with 280 or finer grit sandpaper.
3. Remove sanding dust with a clean, dry cloth.
4. The factory-applied seal is compatible with almost all finishes. A
low odor, water clean up, quick-drying finish such as Minwax®
Polycrylic® Protective Finish is recommended (Minwax®
Polycrylic® is an ultra fast-drying water-based finish). Apply a
thin coat of a clear, protective finish, following the container
label directions.
5. Lightly sand and reapply if desired.
Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling
the trim to the cabinet interior parts.

continue to be born.
