2015 Le Champignon Monterey County Pinot Noir

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.
