Wine Lists

What restaurants or watering holes have the best wine lists in your humble opinions? I'm thinking best in terms of price and selection.

I'm no oenologist, but I've always had good reasonably priced wines at the nice restos in town (Lombardino's, Harvest, L'Etoile, etc.). We typically order a mid-range bottle or go with pairings if we are out for a nice dinner. Otherwise, I've enjoyed the wines by the glass at Weary, Papavero, Magnus, The Icon, etc.

I don't frequent wine bars, and I don't usually choose a place based solely on their wine list. I can attest that the Barrique's tastings are a great deal and fun, sometimes they are even free.

For selection, definitely Flemings at hilldale. For price, I know icon and sardine have some reasonable choices.
