Wine

Pheasant Run Estates Winery’s Ronan 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Blend will go in the books as one of the highlights of the decade. Optimum seasonal weather from spring bud-break to fall harvest was the case delivering a bounty of beautiful balanced fruit. It is a winemaker’s delight when options to really push the limits of the wines comes along in a year like 2012.

Pheasant Run Estates Winery’s Ronan 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Blend wine in particular was very fun to make. Making only 1.5 tons into a wine has its challenges. Not all of the different grapes were perfectly ripe at once.  We harvested the Cabernet Sauvignon first, then a few days later came the Cab Franc, then finally the Syrah. The grapes were just added together as we picked so they fermented as a single batch.  The flavors from the different grapes are clearly in the wine, but in such an integrated and seamless fashion.

I am very excited to release this first vintage of Pheasant Run Estates Winery’s Ronan 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Blend wine.  As a father of four active kids who are involved in many different sports, I know what it takes to support them and the programs.  It is great to know that the proceeds from this wine will be going to make such programs work and to help invite all kids to participate. Its also really delicious wine!
