Somebody has finally gone and done what tends to come naturally to out-of-work Silicon Valley oenophiles with too much time on their hands. Not to mention a healthy disdain for the rigid descriptors printed on tasting wheels!
The Silly Tasting Notes Generator v1.1, a Perl script written by self-proclaimed computer geek Greg Sumner, generates random tasting notes, and is anything but rigid. In fact, you can get downright silly with it. Based on actual tasting notes you can find at the Wine Spectator website, it even works on mobile phone devices!
Before you attend your next wine tasting, be sure to make the solemnly unwise decision to check it out.
