Truth: Most great wines reach a plateau period rather

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

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. Full-bodied 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.
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

Oaky
A desirable flavor imparted to wine if done in

and stems and are necessary for a wellbalanced red wine. Tannins are easily

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.

workmanship for a period of one year (two years on
Modular 3000 Series) from the date of installation. ULine further warrants the sealed system (consisting of
the compressor, condenser, evaporator, hot gas
bypass valve, dryer, and connecting tube) in each ULine product to be free from defects in materials and
workmanship for a period of five years from the date of
installation.
4. The following conditions are excluded from this limited
warranty: use of cleaners other than the recommended
stainless steel cleaners and U-Line Clear Ice Maker
cleaner; installation charges; damages caused by
disasters or acts of God, such as fire, floods, wind and
lightning; damages incurred or resulting from shipping,
improper installation, unauthorized modification, or
misuse/abuse of the product; customer education
calls; food loss and spoilage; door and water level
adjustments (except during the first 30 days from the
date of installation); defrosting the product; adjusting
the controls; door reversal; and cleaning the
condenser.
2. During the initial one year warranty period (two years
on Modular 3000 Series) for all U-Line products U-Line
shall: (1) repair any product or replace any part of a
product; and (2) for all Marine, RV and Domestic ULine products sold and serviced in the United States
(including Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada, U-Line shall
be responsible for the labor costs performed by a ULine authorized service company, incurred in
connection with the replacement of any defective part.
During years two through five of the warranty period
for the sealed system, U-Line shall: (1) at U-Line’s
option repair or replace any part of the sealed system;
and (2) for all Marine, RV and Domestic U-Line
products sold and serviced in the United States
(including Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada, U-Line shall
be responsible for the labor costs incurred in
connection with the replacement of any defective part
of the sealed system. All other charges, including

3. The warranty listed above does not apply to floor
display models. The warranty for these models shall be
one year from the date of installation. This one-year
warranty does not apply to cosmetic damages; proof of
purchase may be required.
5. U-Line products are designed to operate in ambient
temperatures between 50°F and 100°F unless
otherwise noted in the product manual. Exposure to
temperatures outside this range may cause
degradation of performance and issues such as lower
ice production or spoiled contents are not covered
under the terms of this warranty as a result of that
exposure. U-Line product may not be subjected to
temperatures below 40°F without following the
winterization and vacation shutdown procedures in
your product manual.
6. U-Line’s Outdoor Limited Warranty, set forth in this
Paragraph 6, shall apply to U-Line models deemed
suitable for outdoor use by Underwriters Laboratory
(“UL”) as noted in the U-Line Product Catalog, U-Line’s
website and/or on the serial tag located inside the
product. Outdoor product may come into contact with
rain by virtue of outdoor use. Exposure to other
sources of water shall also cause this warranty to be
void, including flooding of the area in proximity of the
unit greater than 1/8" deep in water, hurricanes,
splashing of pool water, or directing a spray from a
hose or similar device into and around the unit.
7. If a product defect is discovered during the applicable
warranty period, you must promptly notify U-Line at 1800-779-2547 or the dealer from whom you purchased
the product. In no event shall such notification be
received later than 30 days after the expiration of the

Any action by you for breach of warranty must be

8. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ANY AND ALL
OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF

whatsoever for any incidental, consequential or special
damages arising from the sale, use or installation of

whether based on warranty (express or implied) or
otherwise based on contract, tort or any other theory
of liability.
9. 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.
