Review: 2006 Palin Syrah
Booze humor is big at Drinkhacker HQ, which is the only reason why a bottle of Palin Syrah was purchased today. Sarah Palin… Palin Syrah… get it?
Well, some comedy is better if you’re drunk, I guess.
Palin is an organically-grown wine from Limari Valley, Chile. As quaffs go, it’s dusty and tight, and tastes very “young.” The fruit is subdued under a leathery, charcoal-ish core, possibly because Chile isn’t exactly known for Syrah. It actually tastes a lot more like the Cabernet that the region is more known for.
Still, if you’re looking for a fun gift to take to an RNC party this week, just glue a quickly-printed web photo of your favorite VP candidate over the drawing of a ball on the label and call it 13 bucks well-invested.
