After completing a rough preliminary sketch, I have a few minor measurement changes that I wish to submit to you before going forward. Going off of 4 inch centers I've managed to squeeze in an extra vertical row, bringing us to 16 verticals, 20 horizontal. To best fit your given space requirements (69"x82") 4" centers seem to work out rather nicely with slight differences occurring as follows:
With pine board your overall height comes to about 83" flat. Additionally, your 41" step comes to 43" with board. And can only be inset in increments of 4", reducing the space to either 17-1/16" over four vertical rows, or raising it to 21-1/16" over five verticals rows.
Lastly, even with the additional row, our overall width comes to only 66-1/8", giving you a loss of 2-7/8".
Let me know if this all sounds dandy, or what, if anything you'd like to tweak. I'll just assume you'd like the wider step(21-1/16"), as this wont hinder my process in any way as of yet.

Hey Brad – Here's a photo of a test piece I made (weight, assembly, etc.) With everything on 4-inch centers, I thought it fit the average 175ml. bottle quite nicely. Let me know if it needs shrinking, as it'd be very little trouble to re-figure.
Post script: I could actually use your baseboard depth dimension as this will figure into the wall mounting brackets I'm making. Thanks!
