Traveling Vineyard’s second charity wine, the 2012 Rayado Limari Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, was inspired by former wine consultant Paigeann Mapley-Brittle, who passed away in November 2012 after a courageous battle with breast cancer.
Paigeann was a wife, mother and enthusiastic wine lover whose life was cut too short at the age of 42. According to Rick Libby, Traveling Vineyard’s founder and chief grape stomper,“The Rayado is a wine to represent a bold woman and an organization that supports courageous women like her who fight this disease every day.”
The name Rayado translates to “pinstripe,” as in charity event attire, a nod to the fundraising aspect of the wine. One dollar from the sale of each bottle of Rayado will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Learn more about purchasing this wine from a Traveling Vineyard Wine Guide here.
Traveling Vineyard’s Rayado Cabernet Sauvignon is bold and beautiful like the woman who inspired it. This year’s release comes from a different area of Chile, the Limari Valley, and has been modified to include Syrah. Yet, it maintains the same taste profile replete with black fruits, dark chocolate and mineral notes making it a perfect match with assertively flavored dishes.
