2014 Cabernet  Sauvignon

Background

Named after the river which runs through our certified sustainable vineyards.

Certified Sustainable

Tinga Rio Reserve wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.
