Nector Wine Lounge

Having visited the San Francisco Marina location a few times now, I have completely fallen in love with this place. It is the perfect wine bar to relax in at the end of the day or on a lazy Sunday. With knowledgeable and friendly staff, comfortable seating, exceptional wine list and fabulous munchies, I highly recommend this wine bar for your next glass of wine. In addition, the wine descriptions will sure to make you giggle. The last glass of wine I had, a Malbec, was described as, "a silky ribbon of cassis & blueberry jelly enrobed in dark chocolate and a crystallized andean autumn draught sensually slides down your gullet with supple & tender grace." Check it out the next time you are in the area!
