    September 17, 2020 - James Cole cabs often taste like tart sour cherry to me when first opened, and this one was no different. I did not decant, but it really started to soften and smooth out after some time in the glass. We drank this with a hearty meat lasagna, which also complemented the structure of this wine. The quality really started to shine through. I recommend a short decant or a little more time in the bottle. Plenty of life left on these!

    July 24, 2020 - Just keeps getting better. One of Napa’s hidden secrets. Glad I have 3 more as there is years of shelf life remaining.

    March 28, 2020 - Really opened up into a smooth, supple cab after about 30 minutes of air. Has aged beautifully.

    March 10, 2019 - Simply great. We are huge Cole fans. Deep purple on the cork. Nice hint of boysenberry on the nose. Decanted for 90 minutes then drank over next 3 hours. Dark fruit, solid tannins and a little pepper / spice developed. Great finish.

    March 4, 2019 - This one needs some decanting and resting. The nose is muted, but there is obvious brooding dark fruit there. The wine really is built to age a while and the tannins are still very young. So the fruit is not very forward, but there is a dark chocolate and licorice ending that begs for a NY Strip to accompany it.
