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 »

    Had this at Marcello's Chophouse for lunch yesterday. Initially fruit forward and still young, Opens with ripe Red Cherries then tamps down with interesting minerality and soil. Quite pleasant as it opens in the Glass. Read More

  • Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark fruits and a bit of cassis on the nose. Fruit forward with moderate acidity with a bitey tannic finish. P.S. Tannins smoothed out by the second day. Give it some air. Read More

  • This was a beauty, look forward to enjoying more of these...eally nice Bourgogne, signature '13 freshness, just slightly forward, with good sap and underlying spice, earth, and well used oak support it well. Have heard contains some or all declassified Vosne fruit, and it it certainly has more depth than your average Bourgogne. Nice medium tanni... Read More

  • When I first saw the announcement that China was calling for international winemakers to come to Ningxia back in 2012 I was intrigued. However, being 7 months pregnant at the time and about to begin a job transition, it didn’t seem like the timing was on my side. This year, when I saw that Ningxia was once again asking for international winemake... Read More

  • Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Not a fruit-forward wine by any means. LOTS of tannin. Not necessarily a bad thing, but let that be a warning to tannophobes. The flavor profile points me to tobacco, dark chocolate, mocha. Not the kind of wine you want to sipmore the kind of wine that you want to accompany food. It is very full-bodied. So, it will with a robust meala beef... Read More

  • Yes, the Monte Bello was 2012.  2007 was a great vintage, and well worth a ... okay with a little bit more fruit forward profile, buy the Beekeeper and avoid the commitment.  I'll serve you the 2013 Westphall when you come up here. But don't do a walk-in the next time, let's go together. (We can also do Bella or Talty or Chappellet if you want,... Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • OK, I have another entry for Al's category.  This is another low-dollar Costco wine.  I violated two of my wine buying rules when I was sucked into this one. Avoid Zinfandels that are not from anywhere in Sonoma County.  This is a rule that has held me in good stead.  Occasionally, I find an exception, but, believe me, the operative word there i...

  • Jen Pfeiffer the Rebel Tempranillo 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines Selection. Deep dark purple red in the glass. Opens with Baking ... over to the palate, but more fruit forward and with bits of coffee and green spices. Still a bit young, but with medium tannins and acidity and a longish smooth finish, with notes of raw green bell pepper as it opened up. Seemed to lack the minerality, earthiness... Read More
