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 »

  • Last night we enjoyed a very tasting dinner in the district at Notti Bianche, which is walking distance to The Kennedy Center.  I ordered an Italian wine - 2012 Villa Santera Primitivo, to pair with Sandra's swordfish and my pork chop.  We loved the wine but it was quite fruit-forward.  I bet a few hours in a decanter would have mellowed that ou...

  • VV-the Bedrock looks good tell us more about it? I have way more Zin's than ... Big nose of dark fruit, a fruit forward wine for sure but not over the top. Loads of Black-Blue fruit with a hint of minerality, medium body, excellent balance of acidity and tannins. Smooth long finish. I'm glad I picked up a few.&nbs Read More

  • Adelsheim Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Quite elegant and smooth on the nose, this is fruit forward and approachable with notes of ripe black cherry, red licorice, bold cinnamon spice and a soft herbal note adding some complexity. Impressive balance on the palate with tart fruit character of ripe red currant, strawberry and lots of bright cherry, this is full and fresh and fruity with... Read More

  • Vista del Luna Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Tasting Room selection; Purple Red semi-opaque in the glass. Opens ... ... Lemon Lime taste. Very fruit forward and for what i expect from a Cabernet, almost no notes of oak. Had this alone without food - perhaps it would have been better, but in the end, just not my preferred Cabernet style - felt more like a Cabernet Franc. Cannot ... 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
