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 »

    Not a bad tempranillo from the Valencia region of Spain (central east coast). ... ... on its feet, not overly fruit forward but more earthy. There is some very ripe black cherry but more forest floor along with fairly pronounced grainy tannins. The acidity and the finish is mediu Read More

  • No, RBA I didn't buy a bunch of these.  My shotgun approach to wine ... not in my wheelhouse--very fruit forward and insufficient tannin and acid made it a pretty simple wine.  As you say though, v v, great for cooking purposes.Did you get yours at Costco?; Read More

  • To get back to Joanne`s question, in my wine classes, I use a simple method to match wine to food:The criteria to assess are body, fruit-minerality, acidity.  I know there are many more, but the subject of wine-food pairing rapidly becomes complex and subjective.Body: light whites for light (and even light-colored) food; full-body (read barrel-a...

  • Those secondary notes come about when you give them 20 years to sleep. Nice one Emark.This first wine tonight won't be helped by a millennium of sleep as the TCA is alive and kicking. I hate it when that happens, was really looking forward to it as well. Rather than open my last Trousseau my back-up was this NV Oregon Pinot from The Great Oregon... Read More

  • Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon Artists Series Cabernet Sauvignon 1995


    Slight bricking in the color. Nose is heavy of leather or tobacco with slight tartness. On entry to the mouth those suggestions of leather and tobacco continue. Little or no fruit at this point. As the wine passes back still tight tannins arise. It is not until the back of the palate that some currant fruit and some acid are detected. This... Read More

  • Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    Fruit forward, a hint of spice. So inky and thick. I was going to brush my teeth after every sip. A bit too dry, but manageable. The legs were so prominent, the glass could have walked away on its own. Read More

  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • Bodegas Mano a Mano la Mancha Mano a Mano 2011


    Tanzer was right on! This was fruit forward with beautiful spice finish and balance. The price tag made it worth it over and over again. Do not let it get too cold in the fridge as it will lose its flavor in low temps. Read More

  • Layer Cake Shiraz South Australia 2012


    Fruit forward without being jammy. Good balance with enough tannins to be interesting. I'm a happy guy drinking this wine. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher

  • Early in my exploration of wine, I settled on Brunello Di Montalcino as one of my favorites, and eventually as my single favorite. Since then, I’ve been asked many times, “Why this wine? What’s so special about Brunello?”  Some have wondered why I would have embraced a wine that they view as “big” and masculine, since people new to wine tend tow... Read More
