Another popular wine that is now available in cans!

You can’t miss the circus-themed label covering the entire bottle/can. They also have one character for each one of their varietals. 

Overall, Freakshow wine has tremendous marketing combined with a winery with lots of experience in this level of wine.

Freakshow Wine Tasting Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon

Fruit-forward and smooth with flavors of oak, vanilla, dark fruits, blackberry, and plum.

Red Blend

It tastes a lot similar to their Cabernet wine. You can taste the same flavors of oak and blackberry with hints of cherry. However, there are some slightly slippery notes in the mix (due to the Syrah blend).


Fruit-forward with a slightly buttery taste and notes of pear and apple.
