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 »

  • 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...

    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

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

    Very fruit forward and a litle shy on acid with a strong tannic bite that on the second and third day gave me a touch of menthol. Read More

  • Halcon Alturas Yorkville Highlands 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Red fruit on the nose. On the tip of the tongue, there is a hit of red raspberry, but modulated by plum flavors. A savory wine. I would describe the tannins as moderate, at most. There is plenty of acid, though. So, this is, certainly, an age-worthy wine. Something of a mineral thing going on way in the back of the palate. Very pleasant, ... Read More

  • Nederburg Pinotage 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Deep ruby red coloration and very clear....slight violet hues around the rim. Aromas include tons of ripe fruit/berries, subtle spice and tinges of alcohol, but overall this is smooth. Flavors follow suit with very forward robust cherry, dark plum, and agreeably with the wine maker, banana...perhaps some vanilla bean and chocolate hidden in th... Read More

  • Terra Valentine Marriage 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting. Bone dryno surprise there. However, the blast of fruit that California winemakers seem to always want to give me is not there on the tip of the tongue. There is some plum and other black fruit, but the thing that smacks you hard is tannin. VERY STRONG tannin. A good wine for those of us who are not fans of that fruit-forwa... Read More
