Arietta On the White Keys Artists’ Reserve Reviews


A rich, lush wine, the 2015 On The White Keys Artists’ Reserve captures all the intensity of the vintage plus the natural richness that develops from the additional 8-10 months the wine spends in barrel. Orange blossom, honey, crème brûlée, chamomile and apricot jam add to the wine’s decidedly extroverted feel. The 2015 is a big wine, but it is also impeccably balanced. – Antonio Galloni (January 2018) 94 points


The 2014 On The White Keys Artists’ Reserve is rich, creamy and expressive. The higher percentage of Sémillon adds breadth, but like the straight On The  White Keys, the Artists’ Reserve stands out for its textural richness and depth. – Antonio Galloni (May 2017) 92 points


Bright, pale yellow. More obvious oak on the nose than the “regular” On the White Keys but also quite vibrant, with a scent of mandarin orange complemented by resin, smoke and vanilla nuances. More backward and serious too, thanks to a penetrating vein of acidity; a step up in texture and depth. Less fruity in the midpalate today but finishes with an explosion of citrus fruits.  – Steven Tanzer (May 2012) 94 points
