“A [restaurant] wine list is praised and given awards for reasons that have little to do with its real purpose, as if it existed only to be admired passively, like a stamp collection. A wine list is good only when it functions well in tandem with a menu.” -Gerald Asher

Well yes, and no. If I might be allowed the liberty, a wine list, in order to be "good,” should also not be way to extract as much cash as possible from each customer.

I wanted to write about a wine list in Denver today, so I went to the usual resources to see what restaurants were worth investigating. My dear friends in Denver, you are getting screwed. And with such consistency, it appears you must like it.
