Overpriced wine in Toronto (moved from Ontario board)

I haven't done a scientific survey, but my impression is that wine in Toronto restos is really overpriced, relative to what you find just about anywhere else in North America (let alone wine-producing countries in Europe). A lot of bistro-type places with reasonable food prices have little or nothing under $40, and what you get for $45 would go at the LCBO for $12. Anybody else fed up with this, or is it just me? And what are your nominations for worst offenders/bright lights? Places I get annoyed at include: Tati, Delux and Bar Mercurio. Surprisingly good: Cava, where we had a nice albarino that couldn't have been much over 2x list price.
