Don't you mean "Lemberger"? :)

No. Blaufrankisch. :)

Used to be that the top PN at Heron Hill was from the Ingle Vineyard. Any idea where the grapes come from in this one? What I find in FL PN is a total lack of consistency amongst the producers from year to year. More than can be simply explained by vintage variations. Maybe it is the producers trying to explore the variable space, which is huge with PN and allows for little error. Dr. Frank has made the largest number of FL Pinots that I have enjoyed. Oh, too much newish oak (and some of it that horrible green tasting American stuff) is another issue.

I like the vanilla beans add on this, it just gives that extra twist that makes this perfect.

Re: Where the grapes came from. Assistant Winemaker at Heron Hill, Brian Barry just let me know that the grapes for the 2007 Pinot Noir Reserve are from Tuller Vineyards (west side of Seneca), Wagner Vineyards (east side of Seneca) and Hosmer Vineyards (west side of Cayuga).

Thanks Kitty. Interesting mix of vineyards, wonder if they still bottle their own Ingle Vineyard separately?
