2018 Inkarri Malbec Luján de Cuyo

SKU #1421174 91 points James Suckling

 This has a brambly array of ripe red berries and blackcurrants, leading to a palate with very smooth, supple tannins holding blueberry flavors long and fresh. Drink or hold.  (3/2019)

Wine Enthusiast

 Black-fruit aromas are grapy and saucy, with a touch of animal hide. On the palate, this organic-grape Malbec feels full, round and pulpy. Healthy berry and cassis flavors are chocolaty on the back end, while a touch of heat rises up on the finish. (MS)  (10/2019)

Warm blueberry pie, blackberry, dark and chewy full body, velvety tannins and a hint of dark chocolate all packed in this organic, gorgeous Malbec from Argentina and you can experience this delight for a very affordable price.

Demeter certified, organic, vegan, but most importantly: delicious. The 2018 Inkarri Malbec is both vibrant and dark, with brambly berry fruit, a lot of lift through the palate, and earthy, cocoa powder notes on the finish. This is a perfect weeknight drinker, but sophisticated enough to impress at more elegant events as well.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Malbec

- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
