Traveling Vineyard’s new 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, and you can purchase it here.
Traveling Vineyard’s Rayado is bold and beautiful like the woman it is inspired by. Shining a bright ruby red color with violet hues, this intense wine hails from the up and coming region of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. It is comprised of 85 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 percent Carmenère, the signature grape of the country, and exhibits beautiful elements of raspberry and plums. These flavors mingle harmoniously with notes of white pepper and a touch of vanilla lingering pleasantly in the mouth.
With such attributes, this release calls for pairing with assertive dishes like a richly marbled rib-eye steak or a thick-cut lamb chop.
