Second generation grape grower Tracy Campbell Parks, with help from husband Andy and her parents (who planted the vineyard), selected wine from their best barrels when creating this reserve Pinot noir blend. Using all estate-grown fruit, the Pinot was aged for 10 months in French oak, of which 20% was new, prior to the final tasting and blending. The finished wine had really generous acidity, which is no small feat considering the fact that 2018 was quite a warm year.
