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 »

  • Gauthier Select Vineyards Pinot Noir Rockin H Ranch Vyd 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Like many of the 2012 Pinot Noirs Ive had, this one is rather tannic in structure, and its an open question as to whether the fruit will last long enough for the tannins to resolve themselves. In terms of nose and mouthfeel, this wine is more reminiscent of a Zinfandel than a Pinot Noir in fact, in many ways it recalls the Los Chamizal Zinfande... Read More

  • JD, Mark, great time last night, hope this is just the first of many!Rob, you're spot on with the wine descriptors.  My first Tignanello (very generous of Mark!) and I was expecting something a bit bigger, bolder and in your face. What we found instead was a nicely nuanced, 80% sangiovese, 20% cab sauv blend that was holding up extremely well.  ... Read More

  • Met up with Mark and Roger, along with our wives and Ryan last night @ AR Cucina. My first time there, and seemed to be a perfect fit, casual and somewhat lively atmosphere, and good italian food ranging from salads, (not so heavy) pizza's, pasta's, and risotto. My wife and I tasted from all categories except the pasta, and all were very good.We... Read More

  • Sonoma Collection Pinot Noir Sonoma District 3 2014

    Snoothrank:

    I have a split opinion about this wine. First of all, as a $15-17 Sonoma coast pinot noir, it's somewhat disappointing, and not particularly true to type, and on that basis, I would give it only 3 glasses at most. However, that being said, it's currently selling at Grocery Outlet for $5 a bottle, and it's certainly an interesting and more th... Read More
