There's good news for fans of Keplinger wines. With the 2012 and 2013 vintages, the winery is doubling its number of individual bottlings—going from a few to more than a dozen. The new offerings will include Keplinger's first white, a blend of white Rhône varieties, along with an Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, to be bottled under a separate label. Drinking the wines is the easy part. Getting a handle on the different cuvées and their eclectic names may take more effort. Wine Spectator's James Laube explains.
