I've enjoyed their by-the-glass selections in the past and I see some familiar favorites on this list.  The Maso Canali, Sonoma-Cutrer, Cambria, and Hall wines jump out at me, and others look appealing as well. I think they do a nice job with their wine program - this looks like a good opportunity.
