The red grape variety is an interspecific new breeding between Cabernet Sauvignon x Vitis amurensis Ruprecht. It contains genes of Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1968 at the Viticulture Research Institute in Rostov (Russia) by the breeders Ya. I. Potabenko, A. S. Skripnikova and A. I. Potabenko. In 2016 no stocks were recorded (statistics Kym Anderson).
