Alcohol By Volume: 14.9%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Aromatics of currants, dark berries, black plums. mocha & marzipan linger as the wine enters the palate full of ripe fruit flavors, Black Forest cherries, Boysenberries, and dates layered with cola, resin, graphite and a dash of Thai spice. A lush and full mid palate prelude a velour like finish, balanced with a touch of acidity.

48% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Barbera.

The number on the bottle represents how many non-vintage table wines we have produced since 1983. Each lot of wine that we select for Subplot is carefully chosen each year after we have made our final blends for our top tier wines. We attempt to create a flavorful, full bodied yet approachable wine by layering vintages, vineyards and varietals in our Subplot wines.
