Skip to comments.Wine Drinkers Balk at a Chilean Wine With Hints of Alaska

An organic wine from Chile has oenophiles in San Francisco turning up their noses. But theres nothing wrong with the wine. Its the name that bothers them:
The wine from a boutique vineyard in Chile was once a strong seller, but now its an outcast in the City by the Bay because its name comes way too close to a certain governor from the state of Alaska, says Celine Guillou, co-owner of the Yield Wine Bar.
Palin Syrah pronounced Pay-LEEN takes its name from a ball used in a Chilean-style hockey game, and it has been on the bars wine list for a while. But sales have plummeted ever since John McCain named Sarah Palin to be his running mate.

This is a joke, right?
Americans from all over the USA will buy it up.
The morons in San Francisco can keep supporting their
terrorists, and letting their dead trees and live
illegal aliens kill even more innocent, productive people.
One wonders what kind of parenting produced such immature creatures. Then, you see Paris Hilton doing her latest schtick and your question is answered.
THEY GOT NONE!!
So now, these useless consumers of finite resources are foisted upon us. Thanks to those who should have been sterilized at 10.
Leftists and liberals achieve new heights of irrationality. As though a Chilean wine called Palin Syrah has anything to do with Sarah Palin. They better not touch it, they might get cooties. They’re being juvenile.
Such a tolerant bunch.
How silly, huh?
“An ounce of pretention is worth a pound of manure.”
Now that I’ve said that...where can I get the wine?
Liberals: Poor vocabularies, can’t spell, can’t read, and all symbolism over substance.
petty, effete snobs
looks kind of like Osama bin Laden.
If the label was 0bama, it would be heralded as the best wine in the world!!
well...*ahem*...true, always have been. Liberalism only works as far as the trust funds stretch, and when it's all gone, they must work then become right wingers about as fast as you can say " SPARE CHANGE."
Also, here is an email that I sent them, offering to help them out of their wine crisis:
If you are having trouble selling your Palin Syra, would you be interested in selling some to me and my friends? I am hosting a moose BBQ at my home in Texas on November 4.
Just goes to show libs and leftists are driven by emotion and not reason and are absolute idiots.... Might also be why the Castro is so opposed to bush.
“Liberals: Poor vocabularies, cant spell, cant read, and all symbolism over substance.”
And irrationality over reason.
You have to appreciate San Francisco for what it is, I guess.
Shouldn’t it be pronounced paw leen?
With San Francisco’s sanctuary policy, they should know how to pronounce this word by now. lol
LOL. I love it when a headline and the story have no connection. One wine seller is quoted only as saying people are talking about it. No sales information provided by the seller. The wholesaler indicates that sales are stable.
