This is what I’d call Russula sanguinea if it were in Europe.
The american ones with similar characters are sometimes called Russula rosacea (var. americana is one), could be a synonym or at least very close relative(s) to Russula sanguinea.
To be sanguinea, it should grow with pine, have a very acrid taste, hardly peeling cuticle (just the margin), and a pale ochre spore print.
