Could you have said more .. and still said less?

Word salad from the label on vanity-labeled bottle of wine from a major purveyor of wines (some edits to preserve the identity of the sender), titled "A wine experience for discriminating tastes":

Impeccably chosen, cultivated in quality, fermented in spirit and matured in excellence, characterizes this collection.

A superlative wine, distinguished by varietals of consistency, excellence, delivery and longevity.

With its delectable smoothness, mingled with notes of exquisite finesse and robust complexity, (the wine) gives mouth-filling richness, excites the taste buds and stimulates the intellect, making it the perfect accompaniment for any dish.

From the first luscious taste to the sumptuous long-lasting finish, this wine promises to leave you in delicious winning satisfaction.

By the way: the wine wasn’t bad at all. It was free, and drank like $2. 😛

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
