Name the Syrah! Get the Cab!

Drumroll please.....Overbluff Cellars has choosen a name!

The winning name is 
Hip Hip Syrah
submitted Rick Burke at the Sneak a Sip of Syrah tasting we hosted last week at Overbluff.
Just in case 2nd place (if something unforseen effects the first choice legally) goes to the name Sinful Syrah, submitted by Jackson Williams.

Congratulations! Hey you know what were good at this wine stuff.
Well you know what they say....practice makes perfect.

As you may have seen on a recent Sip of Spokane post that Overbluff Cellars has asked for our help in naming their soon to be released Syrah. So far, we've come up with some pretty great names. But SIP follower, Nancy Steele posted "How can I name a wine that I haven't tasted nor seen notes on?"
Good point. Winemaker, John Caudill agreed and we've been invited to sneak a Sip of Syrah and get the details first hand on the much anticipated wine.


You are officially invited to a
Sneak a Sip of Syrah
at Overbluff Cellars
on Thursday, July 29th from 5-6:30pm.
(620 South Washington Street, Spokane)
I hope you can make it. Let's just plan on meeting there, SIP

About 2nite: thank you to everyone that attended. It is a sensational Syrah. It's the most beautiful color - the deepest, darkest purple. A truely wonderful wine with a hint of coffee and a trace of chocolate. Mmm




Name the Syrah! Get the Cab!

(the previously mentioned post, in case you missed it)
Want to win a free bottle of Overbluff Cellars Cabernet? Of course you do. Name their Syrah! If they choose your name for the Syrah label you get the Cab! Please have your names in by July 30 they will be printing the label in early August. The winner gets a bottle of Overbluff's fabulous Cabernet. Thanks and good luck! Post your names on SIP and we'll submit the lot of them all to Overbluff in your name. You want this. Maybe drink some of their Fab Cab for inspiration. That works for me.
