Paul Sr. and Beba Frey grew up a few blocks apart in the gritty Brooklyn, New York of the 1930's and 40's. Paul relished his summer escapes to the Poconos Mountains, Pennsylvania. And Beba found bliss each summer on a Catskill Mountains dairy farm (see photo above). Each vowed to escape the city permanently. They later met and married in medical school. While their family grew, they longed for a life closer to nature and finally settled down in Northern California in the early 1960's on their ranch in Redwood Valley, Mendocino County. The 12 children grew up instilled with love and respect for the natural environment, and picked up gardening, farming, and agricultural skills, as their parents had dreamed. Paul Sr. and Beba rounded out their children’s education by schooling them in the sciences, history, literature, classical arts and music, as well as appreciation for world cuisines paired with wine. In the late 1960's, Paul and Beba and the older kids planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Gray Riesling Read more »

  • During Vinexpo 2013 last month – the world’s largest wine fair held once every two years in Merignac just outside Bordeaux – I tasted a fine lineup of Paul Jaboulet wines at the La Lagune stand.

    Snoothrank:

    2005 Andrew Geoffrey Cabernet Sauvignon.Dark opaque purple.Dark fruits, blackberry, cassis, leather, some chocolate. Bold, rich, powerful and concentrated. Tannins are there but somewhat softened. Getting a hint of smoke. A super long finish. This truly is what a mountain cab is all about. Read More

  • Andrew Geoffrey Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark purple with aromas of dark fruits like plums and blackberries with a little damp earth. On the palate the fruits are very faint with hints of leather and an earthiness take over. The tannins are medium nd take over just before the finish. The finish was not as long as I would have expected. As high as the alcohol is, it never interfere... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    The color is very dark purple with aromas of dark fruit (mainly dark plum) along with dried dark cherry. On the palate initially very faint fruit until mid palate and back palate when you begin to pick up the dark fruit and a lot of cherry. Now dark chocolate and some spicy notes become apparent and then an earthiness finish. Throughout all of t... Read More

  • As a Californian, I have felt the loss of such old names as Almaden, Christian Brothers and Inglenook.  (OK, I guess Almaden still exists as a mocking shell of its former being.  OK, I know it never was great, but their bottles did have corks.  Maybe I am the only person who feels a sense of loss of Almaden.)  Another of the old abused names is ...

  • Andrew Geoffrey Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This cabernet is so earthy. it has depth and structure and a long finish. There is a marked difference with mountain cabs. The tannins are more pronounced but do become approachable. I find less fruit and more mineral aspects plus a dustyness. Read More
