Could someone please explain Sip's weird wine pricing?

I'm not very hip, so maybe that's the problem, but my husband and I went to Sip the other night after the theatre (Henry VI, part 2 at the Modern--excellent show!). We nearly walked out when we saw the wine by the glass prices, but I saw a rose I wanted to try, so I ordered a glass.

On the menu, the price for what they called a half glass was about $10 and for a full was $25. The bartender asked me if I wanted a 6 ounce or a 10 ounce pour. I chose the 6 ounce pour, drank that, then ordered another because it was so delicious. When the bill came, the price for my wine was roughly $20 for my two 6 ounce pours. So I got 12 ounces for $20. However, if I'd accepted the 10 ounce pour, I would have paid $25. Why is the menu priced this way? Am I missing something?

Not complaining here. I would go back now that I know it's not going to cost me $25 a glass for a reasonable pour.
