WINEMAKER NOTES: Named for our youngest son, Sewell means “mighty at sea.” To live up to this name, we needed a bold and unique blend. With a vintage that allowed for both gradual and even ripening, we knew we had the makings for something special with our Tempranillo. We’re not sure if Super Rioja’s exist in the same way as Super Tuscans, but, if they do not, we decided to sail into uncharted waters. With this in mind, we took our soft, earthy Tempranillo and added portions of big, fruity Garnacha and structured Cabernet Sauvignon. We couldn’t be happier with the results.
