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 a 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.
