Forefront: (n) the leading edge; a bold, adventurous position. Forefront Wines source the best fruit, regardless of appellation, to craft wines of exceptional quality and distinctive styles for truly rewarding wines. These wines are blended with grapes from some of the best growing areas in California, adding complexity and flavor profiles not often found with single appellation wines, while still maintaining the nuances in flavor from each area. 

 

Forefront 2013 Pinot Noir

ForefrontPN

Sourced from diverse vineyards located on the western edge of the Central Coast of California, the defining characteristic is coastal influence. San Luis Obispo County grapes from the west side of Paso Robles and pristine vineyards in Edna Valley provide a base of dense, black fruit and spice notes. With its loamy soils and cool maritime climate, Monterey County adds impeccable balance, layered red berry fruit and clean minerality. 

A dazzling bouquet of juicy red cherry and ripe strawberry fruit woven amongst touches of dried rose petal and ground nutmeg rise from the glass. Brilliant acidity and impeccable balance characterize the full, ripe palate, filled with flavors of supple red raspberry and cherry pie filling, lingering through the velvety finish and accented by hints of briar, cinnamon stick and brown sugar.

Forefront 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 

ForefrontCab

The fruit for this wine was sourced from three different and distinctive appellations. The lush mouthfeel and bright characters of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from Lake County elegantly balance the vibrance of Sonoma County Cabernet and the dark berry fruit and deep complexity of the Napa Valley Cabernet and other Bordeaux varietals.

This vintage boasts a bountiful bouquet of black cherry, currant and bramble aromas, swirled with hints of vanilla toast, ground clove and subtle mint. The plush palate opens with flavors of berry compote and black currant, supported by silky tannins and hints of caramel creme, cinnamon spice and cocoa on the lengthy finish.
