Faldoni, parts 2716 - 2719

 2716. Sophisticated writers will try to combine these three memories of tastes, sensations and aromas and use those memories to get one to imagine a sensation of drinking some Merlot that they think is exceptional for its price.


 2717. Although referring to all those memories of the taste of such things as bananas and aluminum foil does set the mind to working in an attempt to concoct some idea of some taste, it ends up being a thought process lost in a maze from which it can find no way out. One just accepts that the writer likes something for some reason, and therefore you should like also.


 2718. So the wine critic fills up a text block knowing nobody will ever read it, and if they do it will not be taken seriously except in the instance that the article finds its way into one of those racks you find on the back of the seat in front of you on a trans-Atlantic flight.


2719. And those who write about color indulge in the same pointless exercise. There is no point to mentioning the color red simply because there are millions of shades of red and the word  can conjure up only one of them. Since this is so a person wanting to write about a color will resort to our memories are ask us to imagine the red of a certain sort of rose or the red of a sunset.
