Black red colour with purple rim. The nose shows flavours of black cherries, black pepper, chocolate powder and hints of liquorice. The palate has a soft entrance and is full bodied with lovely ripe fruit tannins in perfect harmony with oak nuances.Winemaker's notes(Jul 2016)
Bright red-ruby. Redcurrant, mocha, pepper, licorice and smoky oak on the nose. Sappy, round and fine-grained, with excellent intensity to the dark berry, fresh herb and menthol flavors. Lovely restrained chocolatey sweetness leavened by subtle green elements. Sexy use of oak here. Still very young. Drinking range: 2015 - 2023 Rating: 90 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Jun 2015)
The 2010 Haskell II is a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre that sees 16 months in new barrels (40% new). The nose is well-defined with blackberry, cocoa and sandalwood aromas that are nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with quite an austere, Médoc-like entry. Nicely structured with a masculine, tobacco-tinged finish, this is a fine Shiraz/Cabernet blend – the latter in the driving seat.

The Haskell Vineyards estate is in the Helderberg, the revered Stellenbosch sub-region which contains many of South Africa's greatest wine names, the 23 hectares of vineyards neighbouring Rust en Vrede, Stellenzicht and Bilton.The estate was originally names Dombeya after a wild native pear tree that gows in the area, and this is the name used for the 'Dombeya' range, which is designed to represent great value at its price point and to offer an insight into the capacity of the estate to make stylish wines of individuality.The founding winemaker, Rianie Strydom, has now handed over the baton to Rudolph Steenkamp, who joined the estate as assistant winemaker and vineyard manager in June 2018. Rudolph has worked for four vintages at Groot Constantia, as well as in France.
Awarded an elite five star rating in the upcoming 2010 John Platter Guide, Haskell also made history by becoming the first South African winery to win Best Red Wine and Best Wine in Show at the prestigious 2009 Tri-Nations Challenge, a yearly competition between the finest wines of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
