A really great place, initimate and perfect locale for relaxing after work. The man manning the bar - Derek - made it even better.
They have a fantastic happy hour menu with small bites and wines by the glass.
I had the Spain tasting flight. The Nora Albarino was ok - I have had better Albarinos - its citrus qualities would work well if you were eating pescado.
We were given a taste of the Napa valley Cain Cuvee - a 40% merlot blend which was out of this world.
Similarly stunning was Santa Barbara Winery's Syrah.
My favorite was the Cortijo Tinto Rioja 06 - with its sexy smokiness and woody overtones, with this strange [in a good way] grassy, marsh scent.
