Joe Appel has written an article for the New York Times Magazine about Terry Theise wine catalogs and how the “[e]uphoric, adjectival Romanticism” language Theise employs “got me to start wondering how this behavior — my “taste” — came into being and why it acts the way it does.”
Appel was the longtime wine seller for Rosemont, a former Press Herald wine columnist. His bio line for this article states that he is now a “writer and winemaker living in Portland, Maine”. I expect any wine he produces will have more than a bit of that “[e]uphoric, adjectival Romanticism” of a Theise catalog. I can hardly wait.
