Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are definitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that.

Aged 14 months in 60% used oak / 40% new French oak. “Michael David’s 2018 Freakshow Cabernet sets the stage with aromas of Bing cherry, fig, strawberry jam and a hint of baking spice.
