MacLachlan is a native of Yakima, Washington, located in the heart of the Columbia Valley wine appellation. What began as an unabashed love for his home state and a desire to stay connected to his family roots, has become a true passion and dedication to the craft of winemaking. MacLachlan recognizes the connection between acting and winemaking in terms of the combination and balance of process, patience and creativity. He chose to call his wine Pursued by Bear as an homage to perhaps the most famous of all stage directions, "exit, pursued by a bear," from Act III, scene iii of Shakespeare’s The Winter's Tale.
JEB DUNNUCK 93 POINTS - "This estate was created in 2005 by actor Kyle MacLachlan. As I've commented in the past, while the name may be whimsical, the wines are incredibly serious."
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which includes 5% Merlot, comes from the Champoux, DuBrul, Dionysus, and Weinbau vineyards and spent 30 months in barrel. It's a medium to full-bodied, nicely fruited, elegant Cabernet that shows the more streamlined style of the vintage yet still brings beautiful depth and length. It's going to keep for a solid 10-15 years."
WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "A handsome red, precise and refined, with multilayered blackberry, savory spice and tobacco accents that finish with polished tannins. Drink now through 2029."
