What temp has it been stored at for those 7 years. If you say "room temp" yea probably over the hill.......
Basement temps which swing up and down based on the season. Winter temps excellent for the wine but summer is not good.

Too hot for wine and humid.
I think it goes around 70s but with the de-humidifier it gets a tad warmer maybe.
My basement runs around 50 in the coldest part of winter and 69 or 70 in August. Right now, for example, it's 63 degrees. I've stored wine down there for 10 years with no problems.

The 2018 Excelsior was a WE Top 100 Value Buy (#95), and this 2020 is a very good wine, especially if allowed to breathe a bit. A dark and brooding cab., like I like 'em. Give it 1-2 more years in my cellar and mmmm... Pretty darned tasty now!

Yep, my main a/c duct runs through the crawlspace right over the root cellar that is now my wine cellar. It's always around 65 tops there, even when 99 outside. Gotta love the good, cool Earth – we'll be there longer than we are topside! 😄 Cheers!
