Sourced from several vineyards spread along California’s cool, sun-kissed Monterey coast, this Pinot shows subtle fruit flavors of strawberry and black raspberry, along with forest floor and shiitake mushroom. This is a lighter, more delicate style of the variety, with tea-like tannins on the finish. Match this wine with a wild-mushroom risotto for a sublime pairing.

All wines go through a primary fermentation, in which yeast converts the grapes' sugar into alcohol. Most red wines, as well as some whites, experience a second fermentation called malolactic, which converts the wines' malic acid into lactic acid.
