"Dark, dense with fruit flavor and thickly tannic, this full-bodied wine is a
monument to concentration, ripeness and richness. Massive tannins are matched
by huge jammy fruit, with a sense of layering and depth that is impressive and
satisfying to experience." Editors Choice (WE)
Aromas of Blackberry cobbler, toasted walnuts, espresso bean and hints of brandy. The wine is weighty with a velvet-like texture boasting flavors of ripe brambleberry jam, toffee, and dark chocolate mousse followed by wisps of pipe tobacco and mesquite.
Building of the wild success of Freakshow Cab - the first wine in the Freakshow
lineup - Michael David searched near and far to find their next main attraction.
Known for taking the road less traveled, they decided an exceptional offering that
displays the undeniable brut of Lodi Syrah was just the ticket. Freakshow Red is a
mash-up of man meets wild...Syrah’s untamed and mysterious allure is refined and
polished with the addition of Petite Sirah and just a splash of Souzao. Prepare your
eyes and taste buds for a FREAK like no other!
An unusually hot summer gave way to the earliest harvest Lodi had seen in 8 years
as we started to press Chardonnay on August 4th, 2014. The 2014 vintage
brought its challenges as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and everything in between

same time! Our final lot of Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on October 17th,
marking the end of the fast and furious harvest season.
