Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​Award winning winemaker James Rowan has created a stunning Waiheke Island ensemble of elegance. Enticing aromas of dark plum, cassis & just enough wild thyme to lure you in. Velvety tannins swathe racy dark stone fruits & delicate violet florals. Bound by leather, a powdered cheeky smear of cocoa creates a dense smoky lustre. Impeccable complexity & length make this wine dangerously drinkable now, however feel free to lock your REVOLVER away.

A taunt & brooding blend of red berry fruits (roadside), dark stone fruits (backyard), bramble & the aromas of a dusk sun settling on baked clay hills. Traces of fine powdered tannin flirt with lip & cheek - elegance of people & the land."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​This is an outstanding Bordeaux-style red displaying stunning fruit ripeness together with stylish oak infusion and layers of rich texture. Seductive aromas of cassis, dark plum, blueberry, cedar and cigar lead to a concentrated and impressively weighted palate that is silky and rounded, brilliantly framed by fine, chalky tannins. The wine flows seamlessly to an extremely long finish. A blend of merlot, malbec, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. At its best: 2018 to 2027."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, September 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​Dark, deep, even ruby-red colour with black-purple hues. The nose is firm in concentration with an elegant, intense core of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit aromas with subtle black plum notes, entwined with an amalgam of herbs and iron-earth minerals. Medium-bodied, the flavours of sweetly ripe blackberries and blackcurrants are melded with black plum elements forming a tightly bound heart. Some herb, earth and mineral nuance adds flavour detail. The palate is taut with refined, powdery tannin extraction underlining the sweet fruit. The acidity is ripe and fine and the palate flows with balance, drive and linearity, leading to a gentle finish of black fruits and herbs. This is a firm, elegantly concentrated Merlot blend with blackberry and blackcurrant flavours on a harmoniously constructed, fine-textured palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6-8 years. A blend of 44% Merlot, 27% Malbec. 20% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon from the company’s ‘Jomara’ vineyard, Onetangi, hand-picked and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 26% new French oak."
