II Re Reserve is built on the unique "Red Hills" characteristics. The wine is beautiful, Cab-rich, fruit-forward, sophisticated, and complex. It shows the deep tannins and solid structure of the Red Hills. This Cabernet is a rich, layered wine, featuring black cherry, blackberry, currant, and cassis. The field blend of four clones (06, 337, 341 and 191), 22 months on a complex selection of premium French Oak barrels, yields an ultra-premium wine that will age effortlessly through the next decade. At Nordby Vineyards, we recommend it with a wide range of foods from rich and bold to light and delicate dishes.

"White" Cabernet: A rare and unique offering from Nordby Vineyards
About "White" Cabernet Sauvignon... (Don't call it Rose'!)
What is White Cabernet Sauvignon? Simply put: It is a white wine made from red Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Although it has a beautiful bronze blush; it is not a Rosé. This White Cabernet Sauvignon is made using white winemaking techniques. The juice is drawn off the red skins at crush and the process begins there. Without the skins, most of the predominant red Cabernet characteristics; the deep, red-purple color and the tannins, are removed. This leaves a lovely Cabernet nectar, revealing a sub-structure of lighter, more discrete flavors, aromas, and esters.
"Lacrime Dell'Angeli" (Angels' Tears) White Cabernet Sauvignon
*Award Winner: 2011 Ultimate Wine Challenge
"2007 Lacrime Dell'Angeli" White Cabernet Sauvignon is our exclusive entry into the crowded Cabernet field. A full-bodied yet refreshing, white wine that abounds with the fresh fruit flavors of peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, and citrus; with a transparent wisp of herbs in the distant background. Always served chilled (like champagne), it will open; revealing a different array of flavors and essences with every taste. A surprisingly versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of red meats, fish, foul, pasta, and vegetables. Perfect for all holiday food pairings. Truly a new wine experience!
Our vintage "2008 Lacrime Dell' Angeli" White Cabernet Sauvignon is drier, younger, fresher and brighter than ever. An earlier harvest provides a crisper, lighter foundation for the winemaker. Blended from our vineyard's four clones; the interplay of flavors and character are very different from the 2007 vintage. The fresh crispness of green apple, melon, and citrus are at the front of the flavor profile with hints of riper apricot and peach on the finish. Served chilled, this 2008 Lacrime Dell' Angeli impresses with its' young, acidic, fresh-fruity personality. An excellent pairing with white meat, fish and foul, pasta, cream sauces and vegetables. Our "2008" will 'wake-up" discreet background flavors in all of your food pairings.
*Production of "Lacrima Dell' Angeli" (Tears of the Angels) White Cabernet Sauvignon spans two vintages: Vintage 2007 and Vintage 2008. These two vintages, although under the same name, from the same fruit, same blends and same winemaker; produced two distinctly different wines!
.Vintage 2007 is big, bold and beautiful. Vintage 2008 is young, fresh, playful and sassy. Both represent a daring, new direction in winemaking. A breakout achievement that reinvents the Cabernet Sauvignon tradition. Consider both for a place on your table.

The edges are smoothed and softened by the broader dark, then milk chocolate and vanilla flavors. The finish is long, smooth, and satisfying.
