Reply to "What are you standing?"

Your wines will be fine if standing them for weeks, or even months, at room temperature (assuming you keep your home or basement at a reasonable temperature. If you're really worried you would probably be fine putting them right in your refrigerator!

The need for collaring at cooler temps is built around the strategy of medium to long term aging. My first "cellar" was the bottom rows from a few shelves from Ikea I left in my bedroom (grad school) and it was 3-4 years before i bought a wine fridge. Not a wine was tainted from being kept at 68-72+ degrees for that time period!
