Alta Vista Vive Malbec

If you’re a fan of dystopian fiction, don’t waste another minute and pick up “The Book of Koli” by M. R. Carey. The way he crafts our future world is unsettling yet eerily possible, as only the best dystopian fiction can be. Though he deals with classic questions of technology, climate change, and how human society adapts (or fails to), he gives a fresh take on humankind’s uncharted path. Alta Vista Vive Malbec came to mind as a wine pairing for the simple reason of its name—Vive, or alive! Without giving away anything you won’t read in the first few pages, the environment of future Earth is much more, erm, LIVELY than we know it today. Go find a chunk of time to sit down, enjoy this book, and pour yourself a glass of fresh, fruity Vive Malbec from Argentina. It’s an approachable, everyday wine with aromas of plum, black cherry, and spice and will have you reaching for one more sip as you read just one more page.

Tasting Notes

Shows intense aromas of plum, black cherry and exotic spices, with notes of coffee and vanilla from the oak barrels. The flavors on the palate are fresh, with good structure and soft tannins, and the finish is full and concentrated, with spice notes.
