A deep, intensely colored wine, with juicy boysenberry, fresh blueberry, wild raspberry and a ribbon of dark cocoa flavors complemented by delicate hints of olive tapenade and freshly cracked black pepper. Breathe in the aromas and sip to savor each of these flavors as they gain focus on the palate. Beautifully textured, with refined tannins and vibrant acidity reflective of the vintage, the finish is long and generous.
About the Winery
Established by Kyle MacLachlan, Pursued by Bear is an exceedingly well-known winery in the Walla Walla region of the Columbian Valley. The owner, Kyle, is more famously known for his acting career. Nevertheless, he is a notable name in the wine industry.
Kyle’s interest in the various processes of viticulture and winemaking started in the mid-1980s. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career, he got the opportunity to return to Yakima frequently to visit his father. There, he obtained the chance to explore the expanding wine scene and widen his knowledge. Growing up in the area made him able and excited to connect with nature. Kyle’s sense of attachment to the Earth got enhanced by his father’s passion and ambition in growing and caring for his gardens full of fruit trees and orchards.
Kyle’s idea of making his unique brand and company was a result of inspiration from his friends. His journey of establishing Pursued by Bear met a significant turning point in 2005 when he got acquainted with Eric Dunham, a Walla Walla winemaker associated with Dunham Cellars.
In today’s time, Pursued by Bear sees through the lens of winemaking to deliver the deep and irresistible allure of wine from a land of possibilities. The vineyards owned by the winery take root in the rich soils formed by the deposition of multiple large floods, one over the other. In addition to that, the area gets blessed by several elements: the blistering day, the refreshing nights, the adequate rainfall, and the beneficial blowing winds all enhance the quality and acquired taste of the produced wines. Oak barrels are used to make limited productions and distributions of delicious red wines.
