Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I like this one. For the price point, it's not too shabby compared to other $50 california cabs in LCBO. It has oak, vanilla, black currant, mocha on the nose. Big juicy palate and medium body and medium finish. It will go will with any grilled meats, burgers, or even BBQ ribs. Blended with a touch of Syrah and Pettit verdot that gave this balanced structure and finish.
Barry Gordon rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Too much like a Zinfandel for my taste but if you like Zin, you may like this.
This is a full-bodied, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon from the Lodi wine region in California. Michael David's Freakshow (2014) was aged 17 months in oak. This Californian is rich, succulent with blackberry and black cherry flavours full on the mid-palate. Lots of smokey oak and cake spices as well. Pair with dark chocolate. - Community Wine Reviews
