Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​Award winning winemaker James Rowan has created a Waiheke Syrah that is synonymous with opulence, extravagance & femininity. Warm berry fruit & black plums worthy of a decadent Roman Emperor. This voluptuous silhouette offers hints of spice that are bound by toasty oak. A seamless structured palate with a bodice that is receptive & candid. SOHO Rosso… inspired by Valentino, created for lovers of perfection.

A turn of ripe summer stone fruits & fragrant cinnamon spice in the air - broad strokes of clay earth & dark berry compote. Oh, to temptation I turn."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​This is totally delicious. Powerful aromas of black/blueberry, dark plum, violet and cedar with nuances of cocoa and black pepper on the nose. The palate is concentrated and opulent, while remaining balanced and properly structured, and offers layers of ripe fruit flavours backed by elegant savoury complexity. The wine is fleshy and supple, and finishes superbly long and velvety. At its best: 2017 to 2025."
4 Stars Cuisine Syrah Tasting, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Syrah of real charm from lovely Waiheke Island on Auckland’s doorstep. It’s subtle and refined with aromas of carnations, pepper, dried herbs and dark cherry fruit. A whisper of dusty oak adds dimension, and the seamless, middleweight palate has lively succulent flavour, good length and a nicely rounded finish."
4 Stars 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Very full, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with light purple hues on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly concentrated, tightly bound and refined in presentation with aromas of ripe blackberry fruit with layers of black pepper, iron-earth and dark herbs. Medium-full bodied, vibrant and youthfully bright, firmly held flavours of blackberry fruit are entwined with black pepper, liquorice, iron-earth, black ink and a dark herbal array. The palate is well-concentrated, and guided by a fine line of flowery tannins, energised by integrated underlying acidity. The wine has linearity and leads to a lingering black-fruited finish with plum, liquorice and earthy elements. This is an elegant, tightly bound, black-fruited Syrah with earth, herbs ink and liquorice notes on a fine structured palate. Match with game meat over the next 4-5+ years. Three clones of Syrah, hand-picked fruit from SOHO’s ‘Jomara’ vineyard, blended with a touch of Petit Verdot, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 14% new and 1 y.o. French and American oak barriques, the latter approx.5%."
