Winemaker's Notes

Located in a high elevation region within the heart of Ribera del Duero, the Comenge winery was founded in 1998 by one of the foremost experts on Spanish wine and Spanish grape varieties. Miguel Comenge's goal was to make a well-balanced, delicious wine from the Ribera del Duero without the excessive tannin structure of many wines in the region. Each vintage is made with the strictest selection measures and attention to quality, from the budding of the vines down to the bottling of the wine. This dedication to quality is reflected in the rich network of aromas that the wine possesses, including Bing cherries, prunes, violets and sandalwood. On the palate the wine is very well structured with mature tannins and elegant notes of forest fruit, dark chocolate and a dash of nutmeg, followed by a very long and expressive finish.

"Bodegas y Vinedos Comenge produces a single estate wine, 100% Tempranillo, under the family name. The 2004 Comenge, from a top vintage, is purple-colored with an alluring bouquet of cedar, tobacco, violets, bing cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with layers of spicy fruit, notes of chocolate and nutmeg, excellent depth, and a long, pure finish. It has several years of aging potential and should provide pleasure through 2020. It offers fine value for a high quality wine from Ribera del Duero." 91 Points

"This is not a blow-you-away RDD, but it is a smooth, well-composed red wine with clean, alluring aromas and ripe-styled fruit flavors that touch on raisin but then pull back to black cherry and dark plum. With its integrated tannins and mild finish, this is ready to go now and should hold form for about five years, maybe eight." 90 Points
