A different beast, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is more backward and reticent, and while it needs 4-5 years of bottle age, is packed with potential. Both black and blue fruits, earth, tobacco, and freshly crushed rock notes all flow to a full-bodied 2016 that has plenty of fine tannins, remarkable purity of fruit, and beautiful intensity and length. Do your best to give this some bottle age, and you’ll be rewarded with a phenomenal Napa Valley Cabernet that will keep for 2-3 decades.
Coming from Napa Valley, the 2016 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, all aged in new barrels. This cuvée is made with the idea to be slightly more accessible and offers a St. Emilion-like feel in its blue fruits, tobacco leaf, crushed rocks, and cedary, spice-laced aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied, has a layered, balanced texture, and terrific tannin quality. It’s another powerful yet elegant wine from Keplinger.
The 2015 Eternity is a spectacular vintage! Opulent in every way, perfectly balanced, a velvety texture, firmly structured...words do not do it justice.
While both the Suckling Report and the Wine Advocate awarded this vintage of Eternity 95pts, at the end of the day, what matters most is that the 2015 Eternity is a vintage to celebrate the ordinary and the extraordinary. That is what an exceptionally beautiful wine is all about. From bud break to bottle, the ’15 Eternity responded beautifully to all the love it received. It was a short, difficult growing year. Yet, as it is often said: well-seasoned growers and winemakers, who deeply understand the collaboration, science and art of winemaking, make all the difference.
The 2018 Wild Iris overflows with all you expect from this delightfully spirited muse. A golden hue, amazing aroma, opulent fruit, perfect crispness, velvety texture and a memorable finish, how wonderful to find all of this in your glass!
The needle goes through the cork and extracts a small amount of wine. When the needle is removed, the cork self-heals - no hole, and no air enters or escapes. It allows you to taste a wine that you are laying down, and to drink your favorite VC wines without opening a whole bottle.

Elegant and light on the palate, with medium body and medium ripe tannins with juicy plum, cassis, blackberry, and dusty coffee notes in the background, all magnified on a long and subtle finish
