Dessert wine of dark red color. Kagor is a fine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. An intense and complex wine with overtones of black currants and a hint of chocolate. This delicious dessert wine is appreciated as an after-dinner must.

The Russian Orthodox Church moved into the late 18th Century French wine from the area of Cahors as altar wine and the Russian Czars as ceremonial wine for special occasions. Since the Russian pronunciation problems regarding the “h” there, it became a “g” and “Kagor” a synonym for sacramental wine. He has been one of the favorite wines of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II (1868-1917). Today he is the famous former czar and today’s state winery Massandra produced in Ukraine.
