Give yourself a present every day? With the reboot of Twin Peaks and a new rosé from his wine label, Kyle MacLachlan is giving himself two.
The maverick director and wine are converging once again for MacLachlan, who is gearing up for Showtime’s reboot of Lynch’s iconic 1990s series Twin Peaks, while Blushing Bear, a rosé from the actor’s wine label, is set to debut this summer.
MacLachlan launched the label, Pursued by Bear, in 2005 with a Cabernet-Merlot blend, and three years later he added a Syrah called Baby Bear to celebrate the birth of his son, Callum. The new rosé is made from three varietals, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Cinsaut. “All three are part of a classic blend of what I think makes a great rosé,” he says. “I like a blend for my rosé.” He describes it as pale pink, refreshing, and beautifully aromatic, with strawberry and melon overtones.
Even though Long Island has excellent wineries, MacLachlan produces his in the Columbia Valley of Washington, his home state, because he wanted to involve his father. “He loved the whole idea of making wine and drinking wine,” the actor says, “and he was a gentleman farmer, so that’s a big reason why I chose to return home to do it there.”
