Skip to comments.Wine Drinkers Balk at a Chilean Wine With Hints of Alaska
Posted on 09/24/2008 9:30:46 AM PDT by cups
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.
Well balanced wine with plenty of complexity. Clean and refreshing. Plenty of depth and up front fruit. Long pleasant finish. Goes well with food and is especially good at cutting through Obama slime and Biden grease. Not to be used liberally.
Probably cost a whole lot more too.
Where can I get a bottle or two or three of that? It will go perfectly with the crow pie I’m planning to serve my dembot family members at Thanksgiving!
Already tried. Each wine seller is sold out - even at the case price.
They won’t ship to Georgia, which is too bad. I’ll try to get my local wine shop to order some in. Thanks for your help!
Interesting, I joke about liberals but am repulsed by them. This wine wasn't even named in jest or topically. And the Left got their panties in a wad over "FREEDOM" Fries as the French were taking payoffs from Saddam Hussein?!!
I’ve always said that, everything about symbolism is superficial.
So damn stupid.
All the best in obtaining some. I think my chances are much less than yours.
Left wing fundamentalists are a humorless bunch. If I remember correctly the San Francisco Chronicle dropped Beetle Bailey from the comic pages several years ago due to reader complaints about it being set in the military.
Who cares what those LGBT-loving cheese-eating San Fran surrender monkeys think!
They are a humorless bunch, aren’t they? I wonder if they would find this funny: I like Barack Obama cuz I can belch his name. Try it. It works!
Thank you Mad Magazine.
I just ordered a case from them!
That’s the one I tried. They won’t ship to GA. I’d be glad to buy a few bottles from you and pay the shipping, though, if you’re willing - just FReepmail. Thanks!
Catchy name. I've always been kind of fond of Chilean wines... maybe I'll have hubby pick up a couple bottles so we can enjoy them once this newest babe is born.
Yes... the label to look for.
Try this shop.
I believe it’s usually spelled “Sirah” or Shirah.”
Combine this with the news anchor from Maine receiving hate mail because she looks a little like Palin and ther you go: Insane liberals. These people have completely lost it.
Good heavens, I never realized that!
That being said, what’s this Palin Syrah wine supposed to taste like? Robust, earthy, and sweet?
Also, where do you get it?
I think a Obama-Biden wine would taste sour, moldy/corky, & bitter.
