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 »

  • Well, CA pinot noir grown in the wrong place, trying to behave like a hot, fruit-forward Napa cab, doesn't sit well with me, either. Maybe you didn't notice Greg's tongue in cheek, RCKR.  ;-)ESOL, what PN from Burgundy have you tried? And from OR? Read More

  • I typically shy away from Pinot Noir, preferring more full bodied, dark & dense varieties.But I have had a couple Pinot's that knocked my socks off. In each case, these were made New World style with very concentrated extraction resulting in a fruity palette and dense mouth feel. But I don't recall what wines/vintages were like this.Would love t... Read More

  • August is here -- along with warm, steamy weather for most of the country. For ... ... Columbia Valley. This fruit forward red blend shows off bold, ripe strawberry aromas. The palate is stuffed with cranberries, blackberry, and wisps of cinnamon. Pomegranate and black pepper spice round out the finish.  This will pair well with grilled meats... Read More

    A bit lighter style Pinot, but still a more earth, mineral, deep fruit style rather than a fruit forward one. Well-balanced and very enjoyable with a long finish of milk chocolate and plum. Read More

    Elegantly spiced cherry cola and black raspberry aromas with floral notes of ... bit tart on the palate with fruit forward notes of blueberry, spiced black cherry and red licorice.

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial

  • There’s always a reason to celebrate or something to which you can look forward. It could be the re-release of your favorite Starbucks drink, catching up with an old friend, or even a three day weekend. But when you need something extra special about which to get ecstatic, there is Champagne and caviar. Caviar may be making a comeback, but did i... Read More
