Blueberry, cardamom and floral aromas are distinct on the nose and offer much more complexity than the average value-priced Argentine Malbec. A solidly built palate is balanced by juicy acidity, while this tastes of snappy currant and plum along with desert herbs. A fresh, popping finish lasts a while due to bright acidity. Drink through 2023.

The subtle and elegant 2019 Inkarri Malbec was produced with organic and biodynamic-certified grapes from Agrelo and produced in a light style, with good ripeness and full flavors. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in concrete for 10 months. It has sweet Malbec fruit and tannins but finishes dry. It’s juicy, but there’s something stony about it too. 2021-2024
Inkarri wines are produced from the organic and Biodynamic vineyards in the small village of Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo, “the home of Malbec.” Agrelo’s terroir is considered to be some of the best in Mendoza for the production of complex red wines made from Malbec. Based in the western foothills of the Andes mountains, the wine-producing zone of Agrelo slopes upward from the town, with slopes reaching more than 3,000 Feet (1000m) above sea level. The region has a dry, desert-like climate, situated in the rain shadow of the Andes. Warm, sunny days are followed by much cooler nights due to cold winds that flow from the snow-capped Andes. This desirable diurnal shift of temperatures extends the ripening period and produces wines with balanced acidity and complex flavor profiles.
