Winemaker's Notes:

Influenced early on by the wines and winemaking practices of the Bordeaux region of France, I have consistently sought a similar perfection for the wines of Forman Vineyard. If I had to choose two words which embody the character of Forman Vineyard wines they would be finesse and elegance. As the sole proprietor of Forman Vineyard, I have the luxury of personally nurturing the wines during every stage of production – from harvest, through blending, bottling and ageing. In the age of anonymous ownership, this type of hands-on approach to winemaking is growing ever rarer. For me, it is the only way great wines can be crafted and made to share with an appreciative few.
My Notes:

About Forman:

Founded in 1983 and located at the base of Howell Mountain, overlooking the town of St. Helena, Forman Vineyard produces 2000 cases each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. All grapes are grown on the three estate vineyards, two on the mountain above and one on the valley floor in the Rutherford Bench appellation.
