Acclaimed actor Kyle MacLachlan has brought indelible charm and a quirky sophistication to some of film and television’s most memorable roles. Since 2005, Kyle has channeled his interest in wine into a second, equally satisfying professional pursuit.
What began as a love for his home state and a desire to stay connected to family has become a dedication to the craft of winemaking. A native of Yakima, Washington, Kyle grew up in close proximity to the vineyards where his grapes are now grown. He is involved in every aspect of Pursued by Bear, including vineyard sourcing and blending selections with winemaker Daniel Wampfler and has become an unabashed evangelist for the unique flavors and characteristics of Washington state wines.
90% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Merlot
Aromas of black cherry and dusty eucalyptus and flavors of cassis, cranberry and dark fruits have been the hallmarks of Pursued by Bear Cabernet Sauvignon since its debut in 2005. The 2016 vintage offers similar characteristics, with subtle aromas of cigar box and a hint of mocha also present across a textured mouthfeel that gives way to a long, persuasive finish.
The wine spent 28 months in Taransaud new French oak barrels. The tight grain and thick staves allow for longer barrel aging and create tannins that are integrated and refined.
