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 »

  • Just got this from Adam Lee. Meeting up with eMark and Foxall Monday for dinner. Should we change venues and do this? Not at all familiar with what Virginia has to offer. Hey All, Not sure if this is the proper place to post this, but wanted to invite all of you in the Santa Rosa area to a tasting of Virginia wines that we are hosting next Monda...

  • I am loving how we are getting to know some of our favorite wine writers in this series of profiles. So far we’ve “met” Ben Carter and Clifford Brown and it’s really been very interesting learning more about these folks. We “know” them from their wine recommendations, social media posts and from their participation in our online events but we re... Read More

  • I believe I have Dmcker to thank for endorsing Charbono in another thread.Got roped into a dinner last night when I should have been on my way home to my family...and it would have been especially painful if I didn't know to order the Charbono on the short by the glass menu. This was the most satisfying Napa wine I can remember, probably eclipsi... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice ruby color in the glass, bright and clear. The nose is very ... dishes. The taste is not as fruit forward as many other examples I've seen, just a hint of blueberry and blackberry at the outset quickly gives way to floral and herb notes. The tannins are somewhat green, but still providing a great foundation for a long, smo... Read More

  • OT - That's a nice bottle of Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs; I would put it up ... ... it was very nice, a bit fruit forward but that's how I like my wine.  Just for comparison, I opened up a second bottle for tonight, a 2010 J.K. Carriere Pinot Noir also from Willamette Valley in Oregon.  Sandra thinks this one is a bit more complex and slightly... Read More

  • "I still prefer soft tannins however, and those tend to improve with age, right?"Actually, not. As Greg also alluded to above, big, fruit-forward (even blowsy) over-ripe wines, often picked later in the year and with correspondingly higher alcohol, tend not to age as well. 1997 was a famous vintage that everyone wanted to love in California (lik...

    REALLY great value in this Italian blend of Croatina, Barbera, and Shiraz. ... ... same on the palate - a juicy fruit forward wine with additional complexity from notes of dark chocolate, cracked pepper, and mint.
