Barrel Malibu -- any reports?

While poking around in the 'bu the other day, I noticed the former bakery spot in the Malibu Cross Creek mall is now a wine bar. The sign on the door indicated limited hours for now, and they were closed at that time, so I wasn't able to poke my nose in and check it out.

Here's their website:

Any early reports? I like the idea of a coffee-shop type of scene but with wine instead, per their site. Is this accurate? And, how's the nosh?

I was also intrigued (and terrified... wink) by this snippet from their site:

'For those who prefer to experiment on their own, our “self-service adult wine arcade” features state-of-the-art Enomatic tasting machines that enable you to sample a wide range of wines at your own pace and whim.'

Eek! Self-serve? Sounds dangerous to the wallet. ;-)

(BTW, I did a search on the name here, but no results were returned. If it has been asked and answered already, a link to the appropriate thread would be much appreciated.)
