Now that the election is over, perhaps the folks that produce Palin Syrah can get off the roller coaster and just go back to making organic wine.
Due to an unfortunate similarity in spelling to a certain Alaskan Governor the wine becames persona non grata in more liberal corners and flew off the shelves in conservative environs.
Now that the election is over?
Well, maybe we can remember that the winemakers also produce organic Carménères and Cabernet Sauvignons in Chile.
As to the name? Well firstly, it is pronounced more like Pay-leen… Next, it is named after a ball used a traditional Chilean game that is similar to field hockey.
Hopefully now that the election is over, the wine can be judged on its own merits and not be the taste left in our mouths by the candidate.
