La Difference Viognier-Muscat 2010

Total Wine & More, $7.99

Aaron:  Smell: not great … flavor nice … overall – try it.  The smell was bitter, earthy and generally unpleasant however if you can breath through your mouth, hold out for the relatively full flavor of this creamy, fruity white.  I noticed mango, pineapple and a distinct lack of sweetness (surprising for a muscat blend).  I enjoyed the long finish and felt this was not bad for a voignier-muscat blend.  90 points

Teri:  Containing a tropical smell with some oak this white French blend is pleasant to drink. A medium body of apricot, papaya, and pineapple flavors this wine bends together some strong tropical fruits that flows into an oaky smooth finish. I feel it may need to decant for a bit to loosen up but the unique flavors for a white blend make this a great bottle and interesting to drink. 90 points
