Jac Cole’s resume is impressive to say the least. After training directly under the world-famous Warren Winiarski, Jac has spent the last 30+ years at some of the most historic properties in the valley (Stag’s Leap and Stags’ Leap, Charles Krug Winery in St. Helena, Spring Mountain Vineyard).
But what I found most exciting was when Jac put down his role of hired-gun winemaker and finally hung up his own shingle at Hindsight. Their flagship wine is this Estate-Grown Howell Mountain Cabernet – sourced from their very own 2 1/2 Acre “Bella Vetta” Vineyard – which sits at over 2,000 feet of elevation.
Packed with immense fruit, this is a Napa Valley powerhouse. Ruby-garnet in color this bold wine presents bright cherry flavors with nuanced undertones of chocolate and clove. Beautiful tannins prop up a sophisticated and persistent finish that just goes on for days.
