2008_09_yield.jpgThird Street's Yield Wine Bar has a cheap Chilean wine on its list that just happens to be named Palin Syrah that all of a sudden just happens to be the weak link: "'It was our best selling wine before (the V.P. announcement),' said Chris Tavelli, owner of Yield Wine Bar, which has offered Palin Syrah, a certified organic wine from Chile, by the glass since July. But after Sen. John McCain tagged Sarah Palin as his running mate, sales of the wine with the conservative's inverted name plummeted—not surprising in famously liberal San Francisco." [SE, photo]
