Castano Scores Again


There’s hardly a better under-$10 red in the world than La Casona from Bodegas Castano in Spain (143743 $8.95). A wonderful combination of rich and lively feelings. Hits the sweet spot between crowd-pleasing and traditional rustic character.

Now there’s an even richer red from La Casona called Hecula. Hard to resist the corny comment and not say it’s a Heck-of-a wine. Because it is. Hearty, warm, earthy and a welcome alternative to Cabs and Shirazes.

What the heck, buy both Castanos and have a hell-of-an-evening.
