Winery notes (2016 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.

Lifted red berry notes are presented with an elegant & lithe presence. Heady & tensioned with a vibrant freshness. Leather, mocha & winter berries are gracefully proportioned."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​This is wonderfully expressed on the nose showing cassis, mixed berry compote, cedar and cocoa aromas with nuances of clove and floral. The palate is concentrated and beautifully weighted, delivering pristine fruit flavours together with elegant oak infusion, finishing superbly long and elegant. Sophisticated and perfectly proportioned. At its best: now to 2024."
4 Stars & 17.0/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Even, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter edged. The nose is elegant and finely concentrated with aromas of dark-red berry fruits with savoury plum notes, along with some earthy elements, unveiling red florals and toasty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and slender in proportion with a light and moderately concentrated core, showing sweet, dark-red berry fruit with blackberries intermixed with earthy plums, and subtle notes of dark herbs. The palate has light extraction and structure with fresh acidity. The wine flows with good energy, leading to a light, berry-fruited, earthy nuanced finish. This is an elegant and slender Merlot-based blend with dark berry, earthy plum and herb flavours in a light-structured palate. Serve with roasted red meats and Mediterranean fare over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, a blend of 73% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 8% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and 1% Syrah, from SOHO’s ‘Jomara’ vineyard, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 23% new French oak barriques."
