Don’s Block is the gentle sloping, south-facing block of Clone 115 on Hallberg Ranch, named in honor of our first winemaker Don Blackburn. We chose this block to honor Don because it creates wine that embodies the type of Pinot Noir Don envisioned for Emeritus, one with charm nuance and grace. This wine expresses Don’s passionate spirit with complex layers that are simultaneously delicate and incredibly flavorful. Only 40 cases produced.

The aroma hints at things sweet and soft – wild strawberries, a meadow of wildflowers, beeswax, sun-dried linens – and these hints come in gentle waves as the wine opens up.  The aromas carry over directly to the mouth with an additional twist of mandarin orange rind to balance a creamy, soft, very lengthy finish. Don’s Block is a wine that you can contemplate for hours if you wish, but it is best when enjoyed for being what it truly is – simply delicious.
