2008 BEST Wine List, Affordable


Despite the walls covered in vintage wine labels and street signs from French wine strongholds, Silvertone feels more like a chummy pub than a posh wine bar. And yet its buyers are no slouches, having compiled a list chock-full of great bottles that span a worldwide spectrum of regions and grapes. Prices remain obscenely low (we’re talking high-end bottles for less than retail), while a wealth of half-bottles allows for sampling the lot without tying oneself down.
