Tasting Notes

Eternal is a testament to the harmonious blend of two remarkable elements: the wine itself and the influence of oak aging, demonstrating how time enhances an already exceptional wine. It proudly showcases the full potential of the Tempranillo grape in a continental, high-altitude, low-yield vineyard setting. With floral notes intertwining with dark fruit aromas, accompanied by balsamic undertones, hints of tobacco, and a subtle coffee essence, it offers a truly exquisite and characterful wine. Its flavor profile spans from the classic Tempranillo characteristics of black fruits and liquorice to the nuanced complexities imparted by extended barrel aging, including coffee, spices, and tobacco. This wine stands out with its remarkable length, power, well-balanced structure, and profound depth.

Arcano

Established in 2012, Arcano is not merely a winery but a deeply cherished family legacy. Nestled in the picturesque Duero valley, this boutique, family-owned estate weaves wines that transcend time. Their vineyards, perched on these rugged, low-yielding hills, stand as a testament to generations of unwavering commitment. Arcano specializes in the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin, with the Tempranillo grape as their guiding star. At its core lies San Martín de Rubiales, an obscure treasure known only to those who consult the most exclusive maps. It's precisely this sense of secluded beauty that inspired the Arcano label, adorned with a fading map – a poignant connection between their modest village and the worldwide community of wine enthusiasts. Yet, Arcano is more than just a vineyard; it's a promise upheld. They pay homage to the wisdom of their forebears, who tended their vines until their final days. Today, they continue this cherished legacy, an inheritance passed down through the ages. Arcano, a timeless journey through history and flavor.
