“LouVino is a bar that serves up small plates and big wines. Their impeccable menu takes the intimidation out of ordering bottles by describing juice with helpful, if a little tongue-in-cheek, designations like “fruit-forward and frisky,” “rich, bold and ‘intellectually satisfying,’” and “interesting and potentially funky.” ”
