Top Ten Liquors is proud to offer to our customers for the first time a selection of Tobias Wines; a vineyard with a strong family tradition.  To explain why we are so excited about carrying these wines, a deeper dive into the family behind them is important.  Toby and Dawn Forman (the winemakers behind Tobias Wines) grew up surrounded by vineyards and great wines. Toby is the son of Ric Forman who helped build Sterling Vineyards into a critically acclaimed winery in the 1970s and 1980s. Dawn is the daughter of Bill Pauli, renown Mendocino County grape grower and fourth generation farmer. Tobias Wines utilize fruit from Dawn’s family estate in Mendocino County along with fruit purchased from premium Sonoma County and Napa sites.  The combined pedigree and tradition engrained in these two California winemakers gives them and their wine a keenly unique perspective, a perspective we love! Along with all their grape growing and winemaking enterprises, Toby and Dawn are busy raising the next generation of wine makers and grape growers! It’s truly a family tradition.

Stop in on Saturday between 1 PM and 4 PM at any of our locations and see what we are raving about!

Tobias Formation Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2014
“FORMATION changes each year, made from the best lots that vintage gave us. The 2014 is 85% Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Sangiovese from Sonoma’s Rockpile appellation. Fruit-forward, bold, yet balanced, it is a classic California Cab with a touch of Sangiovese savoriness that will leave you wanting more.” Tobias (Toby) Forman

Tobias Chardonnay Mendocino Blue Oaks Vineyard 2016
dd6f033d-57d7-47b4-a78e-afa3bc695e45 “Fruit forward yet with structure form both the acidity and warm oak touches, this complex wine offers elements of minerality, flavors of green apple and butterscotch with a long, lingering finish. Elegant enough for sipping, try it with lighter grilled meats and vegetables, soft cheeses, fresh fruits and salads.” Tobias (Toby) Forman
