Wine has been a longtime passion for Washington native Kyle MacLachlan. Determined to find a great Cabernet to feature at his wedding reception, he took a closer look at some of hte wine that was coming out of his home state, specfically from Walla Walla. "I knew Washington was producing some really good wines and was familiar with names like Leonetti and Quilceda Creek", said MacLachlan. "What I didn't know was that the quality ran much deeper and there are some amazing wines that are now becoming well known. It was during this time that I met and got to know Eric Dunham, winemaker at Dunham Cellars in Walla Walla." Both men hailed from eastern Washington, have a similar sense of humor and a friendship developed. A few years later, when MacLachlan decided to create a wine of his own, he asked Eric to partner with him on Pursued by Bear. The name of the wine is inspired by perhaps the most famous of all stage directions, exit, pursued by bear from Act III; scene iii from Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.
