Previous work has quantitatively analyzed expert wine descriptions to identify some so-called “expensive” and “cheap” words that are indicative of a wine’s price. This paper revisits that work. In particular, I examine whether words previously identified as expensive and cheap ones are still indicative of a wine’s price when using the same methods and a different, larger dataset. My findings mostly confirm previous conclusions, although many directions for further research into expensive and cheap wine words remain open.
