Fun white to start off our blind tasting of Heitz Cellars with some ringers.

Bright greenish yellow. Layered nose that took a little time to open up with some citrus notes, green apples, honeycomb, hay, a touch floral and toasty. High acidity (7/10) and balanced with a light to medium body. Crisp and refreshing palate with notes of green apples, lemon, and minerality. Dry and long finish. Drink till 2022. (90+)

This is the inaugural vintage from a boutique winery, Fine Disregard, out of Napa Valley. They produce this Sémillon from the Oak Knoll District (5 barrels) in Napa Valley and a Syrah (one barrel) from the one last row of vines (150 vines) in the Stag's Leap District. Wines are made by Mike Schieffer who is the Assistant Winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars. Fun wines to check out, inaugural release was $98.00 for two Sémillons and one Syrah.

Lemon oil, orange blossom, marzipan, round, waxy texture. I remember my first bottle three yrs ago as much less expressive - really liking where this is at now👌

Really nice white, good balance between a nice creamy texture and just the right amount of acidity
