Pursued by Bear Blushing Bear Rose 2020

America, Washington

Inspired by the classic Bandol rose of southern France, the 2020 Blushing Bear is ‘sunshine in a glass.’ This is a delicate, pale pink wine
bursting with fresh grapefruit, honeyed guava and juicy watermelon aromas and flavors Bright and richly textured, the flavors blend 
together seamlessly as they dance across the palate.

Balanced acidity adds to the mouthfeel, building across a long, clean finish Sourced exclusively from Walla Walla Valley vineyards, hand-picked grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed to capture perfumed aromatics and delicate flavors. Afterwards, the juice was fermented, then aged in stainless steel for five months to deliver a clean, fresh style.

Winery Description

Actor Kyle Maclachlan (Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, The Doors, and many other films) is a native of Washington State's Columbia Valley winegrowing region.  Washington State wine has brought Kyle back home to the Pacific Northwest to craft small lots of limited production red wines and a rosé that speak to the promise of this special terroir.  Not with nostalgia, but with a new story to tell… a story of uncompromising quality and unlimited possibility.

Kyle felt connected to nature from his earliest memories, growing up among his father’s expansive gardens and the gnarled old fruit trees of Yakima, Washington.  His interest in wine began in the mid-1980's after moving to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career.   Frequently returning to Yakima to visit his father and his home, he began to explore the burgeoning Washington wine scene.  Later, inspired by friends in Napa Valley, the notion of making his own Washington wine took hold.  Kyle set out to create Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that expressed the local terroir - an alluring mix of Old World elegance and New World grandeur.  It wasn't long before a chance meeting with Walla Walla winemaker Eric Dunham led to a simple handshake that launched Pursued by Bear in 2005.  In 2008, Eric passed the winemaking baton to veteran winemaker Daniel Wampfler, who continues to craft Pursued by Bear wines with the same passion and care that Eric inspired.
