A Grand Potpourri of Meat Vomit

Please help me understand why I find these tasting notes written by a local wine store so troubling?  I say crazy shit, but this reads like a potpourri of meat vomit projecting in every direction.

Roasted marrowbones, cured meat, black olive, minerals and cracked black pepper are wrapped in layers of violets, wet tobacco and warm soil.

Really?

  • Is it because the aroma described matches the fragrance of my grandmother’s cooking mixed with a large dose of her perfume?
  • Is it because marrowbones and minerals sound like a calcium supplement I should be taking to prevent osteoporosis?
  • Is it because I realize I need to infuse more meat products into my own writing?
  • Is it because I feel they’re trying too hard?

I don’t know, but it really bothers me….
