This Carpe Diem Pinot is made by Arnaud Weyrich, who also makes the Roederer wines in Anderson Valley, some of the best known to the region. So it's no surprise this still wine is also stellar—earthy and mushroom-tinged, with a sexy mouthfeel, blue and red high tones of fruit and just a soft hint of spice. It's also priced at the lower end for the Anderson Valley, making it a steal.
