Vineyard Notes
Vineyard Notes
2018 offered winemakers an exceptional year. Russian River Valley had a long growing season with moderate temperatures. Sonoma encountered an increase in rainfall in the spring, with some notable heat spikes in mid-summer months.  However, it was a mild summer which created tolerable conditions for fruit to mature slowly without additional heat stress. 2018 produced higher yields and pinot's produced in this vintage were nice in intensity and abundant. 5.4 Acres planted in 2007 There are 2 clones or pinot noir on our estate, Dijon 777 and Pommard. Each clone brings its own distinctive character to the wine. 777 is linear with bright red fruit and spice where the Pommard is more voluptuous with a broader, dark fruit profile.

We here at Paradise have named this wine after out founder and patriarch Dr. Walter Byck . You can come here on any day and see Dr. Byck sipping on his name's sake. This is wine that everyone can enjoy together. Its approachable, medium bodied, highly aromatic of ripe strawberries, bing cherries with a touch of sassafras and mushroom.

Winemaker Notes
Gentle is the way to go with our Pinot Noir from hand harvesting during the coolest hour of the daybreak, to the de-stemming process where capturing as many whole berries is our goal. Fermentation in small specially designed open tops with a small cap capability allows us to fully extract all the flavor within the berries without having to utilize the harsher punch down techniques.
