Pursued by Bear is the winemaking project of Kyle MacLachlan (actor famous for his roles in Twin Peaks, Dune, and Portlandia to name a few).
This exemplary Cabernet is sourced from four vineyards: Dubrul Vineyard, Champoux Vineyard, Heather Hill Vineyard, Dionysus Vineyard. 569 cases produced. Vegan friendly.
Subtle aromas of dusty mocha and violet introduce classic flavors of black currant, blueberry, and black plum. The flavors surround soft, fine-grained tannins, a result of aging in new Taransaud barrels. Remarkably silky, elegant, and downright seductive, this wine is a classic expression of the best in Washington Cab.
