as PH says, definitely let the wines get up to room temp first.

Also if the time from purchase to consumption is <3months, storing them in a cooler isn't critical, and the performance of your cooler probably has nothing to do with your experience. As long as they are out of direct light and not some place that gets hot (over a stove, next to a dishwasher, adjacent to refrigerator exhaust). If your consumption is usually spontaneous, this would alieviate the issue with having to wait for them to warm up out of the cooler.
