Triangle Wine List

So, I was hopeing to learn about another place with an exceptional wine list from this thread, but here is my list:

Elaine's - a ton of great wines with lower prices than many other restaurants. Great wine by the glass.

Lantern - a well-chosen list for its cuisine with really tasty stuff (But sometimes it is hard to resist the cocktails).

Jujube - It's fun to read and the descriptions have actually alined with what I think about the wines I've had there.

Vin Rouge - While I don't know a tremendous amount about French wines, I have never had a wine there that wasn't at least really good. Another place with great by the glass offerings.

Weathervane - Another place with wines I've always liked. It's a cool mix of varied types of wine.

Magnolia Grill - There are some wines on their wine list that surprise me, but for the most part, I really love it.

Enoteca Vin -It's great to have the opportunity to try some amazing (expensive) wine by the glass or taste.

Acme - This place has great wines but I stopped going because either the food or service was bad. They could never get it all right at the same time.

Durham Alivia's Bistro

Has anyone been yet? What are your thoughts? I stopped by just to peek and liked the look. The menus look interesting and the wine list seems fun.

Triangle Wine List

I went to heron's tonight and was not impressed with their wine list. It is big and there are certainly lots of blockbusters but there didn't seem to be a lot of thought involved.
p.s. the food was un-inspired but tastey and the service was distant but accurate.

Triangle Wine List

I just found this forum and think it is very cool.

There does'nt seem to be much talk about restaurant wine lists, though. Which restaurants do you think have the best wine list in the triangle? Not necessarily the biggest lists, but the ones with the most well chosen wines.
