2015 Claret Red Blend

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.

Notes from the Winemaker

An elegant crimson color. On the nose, strawberry and plum with hints of nutmeg. It has good structure and volume with a ripe red fruit finish.
