Ok, normally I am a red wine girl. Not picky, the 3 dollar bottle tastes just fine to me, I won't turn down the 12 dollar one....
However, I found a locally produced wine.
Reluctantly I bought it.
The fact that I could have been hammered for the week on the equivalent $$ in 'fluppes' was one point...that I never had this grape was another: Muscadine.
The reason I bought it was that I have actually driven past the vineyard. beat me to death with my own arms, I would not be able to tell you the way - I think - but I know It did see the place.
The flavor is different than anything I ever tasted that called itself wine.
It is more like a liqueur, almost syrupy.
it is not sickeningly sweet, but not tart either. Very strange to my taste buds....
(me thinks I need to ask the people for a tasting...)

Muscadine I think are native American grapes...sounds like this is a late-harvest "icewine" type (those are the only kinds I'd call syrupy as opposed to just sweet.) I can't say I like them, but then I also don't like the Moscado wines, which seem to be trendy.
