Cascading racks present each label clearly as the innovative Wine Captain drawers glide open and reveal a total of 43 bottles. A removable caddy lifts out for convenient transfer of three bottles to table or fireside. Each drawer maintains its appropriate temperature between 40 and 60 degrees. A TouchSensor panel on the glass fronts adjusts temperatures and turns on interior lights. Stainless steel or black trim borders tinted, thermal-tempered glass. U-Line, 414.354.0300; www.u-line.com.
