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 »

  • Old World Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Laughlin Vineyard 2005

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of January 2008.) The 2005 Laughlin Pinot Noir is a delicious wine, even though it lacks the depth and layered fruit density (as well as about 2% alcohol) of the superb 2004, which came from a warmer and riper year. Looks and tastes uncannily like a fully mature five or six year old Pinot Noir. Fragrant, forward, attractive jammy strawb... Read More

  • Etude Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Vanilla and brown baking spice aromas filled with every berry flavor ... A little more fruit forward than the other Etudes I tasted and tannins are quite noticeable with some dark chocolate, espresso lingering on the finish. Would taste delicious with a big, juicy steak Read More

  • Two Rock Bei du Rocchi Ranch 2004

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of May 2007.) I'm not sure what grapes are in this wine, but it struck me as similar to the super-rich Shiraz-Cab blends from Australia. Deep purple in color, the wine displays huge structure, a boatload of tannin, and extremely rich, chewy texture. The fruit is bright and forward, yet there is a lot of complexity in its flavors of rasp... Read More

  • Old World Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Laughlin Vineyard 2003

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of April 2006.) The Laughlin Pinot Noir from Old World Winery always seems to come across as more masculine and terroir-influenced than the more elegant and floral Windsor Gardens. This is another big Pinot Noir, similar in some ways to the 2001 Laughlin, though to my taste it has less of a hot feel than the 2001 despite its 15.3% alcoh... Read More

  • Old World Winery Syrah Russian River Valley Rockin' R Ranch 2003

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of April 2006.) A terrific debut Syrah from winemaker Darek Trowbridge. Similar in style to a fleshy Australian Shiraz, this wine provides ripe, chewy dark raspberry and blueberry fruit, lots of spicy sweet oak, and a classic roasted-meat like character underneath. Forward fruit aromas, impeccable balance, and seamless mouth-feel, with ... Read More

  • Old World Winery Zinfandel Russian River Valley Pena Creek Vineyard 2003

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of March 2006.) The excellent 2003 Pena Creek Zin (15.5% alcohol) is something of a return to the turbo-powered 2001 model, which was one of our favorite Zins ever, and a definite contrast to the refined, very Pinot Noir-like 2002, which we like better each time we taste it. The 2003 seems much less evolved and forward than the 2001 was... Read More

  • Dom Carneros Pinot Noir 2006

    aromas of red cherry, pepper and strawberry. Strawberry on the palate as well ... of chocolate, very light, fruit forward and simple finis Read More

  • Old World Winery Zinfandel Russian River Valley Pena Creek Vineyard 2000

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of Feb. 2004.) Tasted for about the 10th time in February of 2004, this wine was again excellent. Checking in at 15.5% alcohol, the wine had softened a bit over the past year, but was still a powerhouse wine that had the appearance of prune juice and more than enough flavor to absorb the alcohol. Forward yet complex nose with earthy bla... Read More

  • Old World Winery Zinfandel Russian River Valley Laughlin Vineyard 2000

    Snoothrank:

    (Review of Dec. 2006.) Rich, layered Russian River Zin The nose already shows some complexity, with forward vanilla, berry, and plum components. Seems to be a bit more refined and elegant, if less powerful, than the equally delicious '99. (It would have been nice to compare the two vintages, but we've managed to burn through all our 99's.) The ... Read More
