Mmmmm. In a word, that is how I describe Castaneda Sangria. In the heat of the summer, I am much less likely to imbibe in red wine. While nothing beats a nice glass of zin or shiraz in cooler weather, I lean towards beer this time of year. Something cold and crisp and refreshing. Sangria is a nice, fruity alternative! I like to layer thinly sliced oranges, lemons, and nectarines with ice in a large pitcher and pour a bottle of chilled Castaneda over the top. Serve in a pretty glass with a citrus garnish. Irresistible. Thank you, World Market!
