Chateau Bel Air Haut Medoc 2014
The wine is extremely supple at first with expansive jammy crushed blackberry, creme de cassis, a nutty sort of mocha character, then a berry fruity midpalate, followed by a slightly minty, earthy, yet soft, supple finish with elegant balanced tannins and lots of length. Perfect with steak teriyaki, chicken marsala and lamb kabobs.

Wine SpectatorFresh, with a lovely beam of cassis and cherry coulis notes streaming through, carried by fine, chalky structure and backed by a whiff of smoldering tobacco. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2019. 4,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe Château Bel Air 2014 has a lot of new oak on the nose that obstructs the sense of terroir or fruit. The palate is quite nicely balanced with grainy tannins and a touch of coconut infusing the black fruit, but it feels rather dry on the finish,
