When we needed this in Glance, we used one of these 2 options:

1) Topics: We changed reviews topics accordingly based on the milestone:
(glance-RC1, glance-RC2, glance-M1, etc)

2) Commit Message: We used this to tag priority reviews for the cycle. This was
less effective, TBH and I wouldn't recommend it.

I know there's a gerrit feature that is, AFAIK, not released yet that adds
"hashtags" to gerrit. Basically the ability to add tags to reviews and search

I'm not a huge fan of the starring option but I can see how that could work for
other folks. One thing in favor of starring patches is that it's persistent
across PS.
