Ric Forman's aspiration to create finely crafted Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon in limited quantities led him to establish Forman Vineyard in 1983. Following a meticulous three-year exploration of Napa Valley, he acquired the present winery/vineyard site in 1978. Situated atop a ridge near Howell Mountain, it offers a breathtaking vista of St. Helena, embodying the ideal setting for his winemaking vision.

"A philosophy of winemaking which follows more a traditional approach as opposed to technological appealed to me early in my career. I would say that a familiarity with European tradition has seriously influenced my style and hence the fashion with which I designed and built my winery. "

-Ric Forman

 

 

“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, heady wine. Even though it was just bottled, the 2019 possesses remarkable textural intensity. A whole range of floral and savory notes open as this statuesque Cabernet shows off its personality. This is an especially rich, bombastic Cabernet from Ric Forman.”

-Vinous, 97 Points

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley offers a classic, old school Napa Cabernet nose of darker currants, green tobacco, spring flowers, camphor, and new leather. As with the 2018, it plays in a more medium to full-bodied, elegant style, has ripe yet certainly present tannins, and a great finish. The 2019 is more accessible and open than the 2018 and should continue drinking brilliantly for another two decades if stored correctly."

-Jeb Dunnuck, 96 Points

"... This is such a classic Bordeaux blend aromatically. Nothing is obvious but all so integrated. Deep black berry and tobacco seem to mesh with an almost mint-violet complex. A beautiful toasty oak brings all together..."
