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.

    Thanks for the report! I have been meaning to try the place and now I will make a point of it. BTW, the little Greek place next door is pretty good for a quick bite.
