Antonio Galloni, Vinous - January 2020
The 2017 Roberta's Reserve is a deeply intriguing wine, as it is quite marked by the 5% Cabernet Franc that is in the blend, and that adds savory aromatic intensity. The 2017 is persistent and also quite powerful today. It is also likely to require at least a few years in bottle to be at its most expressive and rewarding. Time in the glass brings out the Merlot on the mid-palate as well as the wine's inner sweetness.
