Founded in 2002, Fruit Forward is an expression of our fascination with wine. Our goal is to ignite our customers with enthusiasm, spark a desire to learn and consistently deliver sensational wines at fantastic prices. Most wine drinkers try at least two new bottles of everyday wine each month. Often these bottles of wine are selected based on their price and the looks of the labels - with little or no attention to the quality of the wine in the bottles. Our monthly service takes the guess work and confusion out of selecting and enjoying great value wines. Our expert tasting panel seeks out premier value wines from around the world and each month hand-selects the top two bottles from hundreds of candidates. We deliver these outstanding wine selections directly to your home or office each month. We taste a lot of bad wine so you don't have to! The term "fruit forward" describes wines rich with ripe fruit flavor and scent. Moreover, the phrase describes our business - we forward fruit (in the form of Read more »

  • Conn Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Very fetching and fruit forward with bing cherry, candied cherry, mint, cocoa, brown spice and oak aromatics. The nearly full-bodied nearly full-bodied palate features very fine-grained tannins, medium-plus acidity and long flavors of blackberry cream, spice, oak and tobacco. 91+pts Read More

  • Wm. Harrison Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fruit-forward and delectable, the nose proffers chocolate mint, huckleberry, black cherry, brown spice and mocha. The palate is full-bodied and replete with fine, powdery and chalky tannins that frame very long flavors of oak, chocolate mint, dry herb, tart blackberry, spice and mocha. Youll have to wait to receive this wine, scheduled for a May... Read More

  • While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...

  • Fall Creek Vineyards Chardonnay Texas Hill Country NV

    Snoothrank:

    Spent a few days in the Hill Country tasting wines from my home state. Most were still not very good, but this sub-$10 Chardonnay was a pleasant surprise. A tasty, straight forward Chardonnay with apples and citrus fruit, delightfully un-oaked. Went well with shrimp and crab gumbo. Read More

  • In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

  • Gosh, it sure is lonely, here, today.Looking forward to my shipment from Bedrock next month (I think).What a fun wine.  More fruit--cherry, berry, stone fruit--than I normally like on entry, but it diminishes fairly quickly.  Very tame tannin, but good, refreshing tannin.  I wish I had opened this one with the grilled chicken the other night.  I...

  • dvogler - I completely agree with Dmucker on the Beringer and Mondavi. Those should be in prime shape right now at 20 years in. And from an excellent vintage before Napa went over the edge. I'd be interested in the Mondavi - they went through some rough times. Very uneven winemaking, serious disagreements within the family, just about every soap... Read More

  • I was right, Taste of Sonoma was a cattle call. The gates opened at 11:00, we rolled in at 11:30 and the line was longer than I have ever seen. This was half way in... Not sure what was worse, waiting in line or being treated to a woman behind me going on and on about wine, grapes, commercial harvesters etc when she had no clue what she was talk...
