The only Latin American winemaker to obtain 100 points from Robert Parker, Marcelo Pelleriti is a tour de force. His day job is winemaker at Monteviejo and the Bordeaux properties of the Pere-Verge family, Chateau Le Gay in Pomerol. For the holidays, we're highlighting his work at the Kauzo Estate. A terroir expression project, using single vineyard sites throughout the Uco Valley to showcase an amazing vintage (2018), his La Consulta is a pure, elegant red that easily compares with $50+ Napa Reds. We think it's one of the best we've ever tasted, with huge aromatics of red fruits, strawberry, cherry and plum, complemented by crisp minerality and lifting acidity.
"A dense, focused red with plum, dark-peach and stone character. Full to medium body. Solid core of fruit. Creamy, polished tannins. Deep and long. Want to drink it now and beyond. Drink now or hold." James Suckling, 94 Points
