Tasting Notes:

Very complex aromas of Orange Blossom, Mango, Ripe Honeydew and Lemon Custard with a hint of Toasted Oak on the nose. The wine is both refreshing and savory with bright acidity that leads to a well balanced and satisfying middle palate. Finishing flavors of Key Lime and Kumquat mingle with toasty Crème Brûlée create a long lasting crisp citrus.

Awards:

Brand for Forthright Winery
Our purpose is simple: produce fantastic wine that reflects our values and our way of life, which mainly involves enjoying the craic surrounded by friends and family.

At Forthright, the wine we produce in the historic Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley reflects our values and way of life. Sourcing fruit from the best local growers we craft premier-quality wines in limited quantities. Honesty guides us, as does simplicity, joy and an unwavering commitment to hand crafted elegance. It is our belief that Forthright varietals and blends are among the best wines you will find in California.

Our signature Merlots, along with our red Bordeaux blend, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay offerings, are joined by other styles only in years when the fruit, and resulting wines, meet our high standards. We refuse to release a wine that is not an exquisite expression of its particular style or variety.

The craft of boutique winemaking is our life’s work. We invite you to join the Forthright Fellowship, or come taste with our winemakers in our 6,000-square-foot cave, one of the most intimate and enchanting wine visitor settings in the United States.
