Tasting Notes

Staff Pick Notes

This must be where wines go when they die. I didn't think I needed a reason to love Kyle MacLachlan more than I already do, but the Pursued By Bear collaboration between Kyle and Dunham Cellars is resulting in outstanding wines, and this Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolute knockout. Luscious blackcurrants, dark berries, and plum combine with spiced tobacco to make for a damn fine wine. Barrel aged for 32 months, this Columbia Valley blend of 81% Cab and 19% Merlot is rich, balanced, and supremely enjoyable. Kyle started making wine as a way to reconnect with his native Washington state, and to have something fun to do with his father. Dad would be proud: this is simply one of the best reds I've had this year. Agent Cooper said: "Every day, once a day, give yourself a present." Make your present this terrific bottle of wine.
