Latin for 'intimately connected', Derby Wine Estate’s 2006 Implico is a Bordeaux-style blend comprised of fruit from both the east and west side of Paso Robles. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were selected from the warmer east side, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot were chosen from the slightly cooler west side.

Blended together, the 2006 Implico exhibits complex flavors of cassis, black currants, earth, crushed leather and hints of dark chocolate and cola. The tannins are firm yet refined with many layers, revealing themselves more and more after each sip.
