Que Syrah, Sarah?

It’s not
doing well in San Francisco
but appears to be popular in Texas. Interestingly, it seems to be selling well in Berkeley. We’re talking about Palin
Syrah
, an organic wine from Chile that happens to share a name with vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Ever since Fox
News ran a story on the wine
claiming it had been “unofficially
blackballed” in San Francisco, people have been debating its merits.

Drinkhacker
says
it’s “dusty and tight, and tastes very ‘young.’” Meanwhile, Chowhounds have been having a little fun with the wine, too.
