J. Christopher, 2016 J Christopher Sauvignon Blanc Willamette Valley

90
"Brilliant straw. Sharply focused citrus fruit, floral and herb scents, plus a hint of green tea in the background. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering bitter lemon pith and pear skin flavors that show very good tension and spicy bite. Closes chewy, taut and long, featuring repeating florality and stony cut."
