With summer in full swing, I am excited to offer this well-made Sauvignon Blanc from Overland. The NAME and THE STORY start in 1854, when a pioneer family walked “overland” for almost 2000 miles across plains, mountains and deserts. They started in Council Bluffs Iowa and ended up in what is now known as Sonoma. They followed the Gold Rush “Argonauts” to start a new life in California and settled on the land where KICK RANCH grapes are grown today! Their journey took 4 months and started a new life. By 1875 they had a farm and vineyards planted which over time (prohibition) became a cattle ranch and where Kick Ranch planted its first grapes in 2000.

The wine shows medium intensity with bright clarity and lemon-green core color. The developing nose shows medium to medium plus intensity with aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, hay and honey. Secondary notes of candied lemon rind, lemon verbena and a gravel-like minerality complement the fruit. The palate shows medium plus intensity, body, acidity and length with flavors of candied lemon, lemon poundcake, baked apple and mild notes of honey. The gravel-like minerality returns in the lingering finish. Only 230 cases produced.
