The flagship of the Silvestri line, the Rising Tide pinot never disappoints. With cherry, strawberry, cedar, and a hint of spice, this fresh and balanced, light bodied sipper is a classic example of Carmel Valley sophistication. Less flamboyant then the famous SLH cousins to the north, consider the Carmel Valley region like the Gigondas to the cousin CDP.

Strawberry and cherry with a hint of glazed sugar. Silky smooth and balanced from start to finish. Chewy in the finish with nice acid lingering. This is a lovely light bodied red that typifies a Carmel Valley Pinot.

Light ruby color. Plumb, rhubarb and stewed fruit on the nose. Dark cherry, black berry, oak, rhubarb pie, and tart cherry cobbler with a tart smokey finish. Viscous and compact, this is an excellent example of a Carmel Valley Pinot.

Light ruby color. Lovely nose reminiscent of the nearby SLH cousins. Tart cherry, oak and spice on palate with lingering acid. A bright and fresh pinot, excellent alone or well paired with grilled salmon, baked chicken, turkey, and most straight up fish dishes.

Tart cherry and cranberry with grippy acid. Chewy and smooth.

Light ruby red in color, but the smokey meat nose hints that this is a serious wine, and it is. Tart and spicy cherry followed by more spice as the acid takes overs. Silky and straightforward, this is a very drinkable Pinot.

Outstanding bottle of pinot. Deliciously layered fruit and earth with a luscious mouthfeel. Only minor quibble is that more acidity could have given the fruit even more texture. Still, though, an excellent expression of the grape.

Cherry nose. Cherry and toffee with luscious finish. Acid lingers a long, long time.
