Californian Wine Bar?

Can anyone recommend me a good wine bar in Los Angeles Area? I just moved from NYC and was quite disappointed with the fruity flavorless Californian wines I had in many restaurants in LA so far, but I am so close to the wine region of the new world. There's got to be good wines out here! To begin my search, I was hoping to try the local wine bars. Any recommendation would be appreciated, if they serve good bar food, better.

  1. A.O.C. on Third Street.
    The Nose on Colorado in Pasadena.

    1. Friday or Sunday tastings and Cheese at Colorado Wine Co in Eagle Rock!

      1. I would add, in no particular order: Lou, Bottlerock, Bin 8945

          1. For a real wine bar, not a restaurant masquerading as a wine bar, try the Gourmet cheese and wine bar in the South Bay Galleria on Hawthorne blvd and Artesia in Redondo beach.
            40 wines by the glass beautiful ambiance, and flights of wine, plus pub grub. 310-214-2122.
