Thanksgiving day wines.

we are travelling to Denver for Thanksgiving and we are providing the dinne r wines which I shipped ahead yesterday. Our son and his wife live in Denve r and their house is being renovated so we are all dining at the home of a law school buddy of his. I decided to stick with American wines this year. 2008 Shramsburg Blanc de Noirs to start with, 2006 Peter Michael "Ma Belle Fils" Chardonnay, 2009 Kongsgaard "The Judge" Chardonnay, 2002 Duckhorn "Th ree Palms Vineyard" Merlot, 2009 Faila "Hirsch" vineyard Pinot Noir and 199 8 Dolce for dessert. Notes to follow.

rand Cru Burgundy. :-) I did find a couple of stores there a few years ago as I had relatives in McLean and Arlington. Arrowine and Vineyard as I re call.
If Paul Ryan buys it, that would not be a recommendation for me. Arrowine i s the only store in the area that has a decent selection. Total Wine isn't too far away but not my favorite store. The really good ones are in Georget own and that is difficult to get to.

If near a Metro in Arlington, Schneider's on Capitol Hill is really good. Short walk from Union Station. Not terribly difficult to drive to, dependi ng on time of day, where in Arlington etc. Capitol Hill is much easier to maneuver than Georgetown.

Here is a link to their site if you want to check them out before you make the trek:

You will have to transfer to the red line at Metro Center to get to Union S tation. I wouldn't think the ride from Ballston would be more than 25-30 m inutes.
It would be an easy drive (non rush hour) from Ballston. Cross the river o n 66, take Constitution past Capitol and turn left on 3d street. They have parking.
I have no affiliation with them -- don't even live in DC anymore. Always f ind it worthwhile to visit when there, though
