I don't think you need a perfect cellar for short term aging. Stash some in a closet for a year and see what happens.
You need the optimal 55Â°, 70% humidity environment if you are going to store Bordeaux or vintage port for 20 years. If you're just aging some near term wine, it's not as important.
