Wines we like at Mollie Stone’s + Two More

Do you have a Mollie Stone’s Market near you? What I like about Mollie Stone’s wine department are the many boutique wine offerings available. Many of these wines are under $20 and Best Buy Wines. On National Brands, the prices of wine at Mollie Stone’s are higher than Safeway, Trader Joe’s, and Costco.

There are nine Mollie Stone’s stores in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many people like the shopping environment of the Mollie Stone’s stores. The staff is friendly, and they carry a lot of interesting and gourmet foods. For example, it is the only store in my area that carries Bomba Rice for Paella.

Mike likes this Ribera Del Duero at Costco

2012 Kirkland Signature Ribera Del Duero Gran Reserva $13.99

Mike says: “The Kirkland Ribera Del Duero is a classical Tempranillo, expressive and medium-to-full bodied.  Spain has a wealth of great wine of many varietals and so many are affordable. Give the Ribera at least a half hour of breathing time to open up and reveal flavors of wild berries and earthiness.   Gran Reserva for $13.99!!!     91 points @ Foster City Costco

Trader Joe's River Red Rancho Sisquoc
Rancho Sisquoc River Red

2016 Rancho Sisquoc River Red $9.99

The Sisquoc River Red is a Santa Barbara County vineyard wine. It is a crazy blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 14% Pinot Noir, 10% Syrah, 4% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Sangiovese, 2% Pt. Verdot. It sells at the winery for $22 and won a Double Gold at the recent San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. The Sisquoc Red Blend is a terrific wine with pasta and pizza. We had it with the Date Night Pasta and it was excellent. The Sisquoc Red gives off big cedar notes, spice, and red fruit, 88 Points. A bit of trivia about the Rancho Sisquoc Winery. It is owned by the Flood Family of San Francisco.
