Today’s “Quick Sip” is the Chateau O’Brien 2007 Cabernet Franc Cellar Collection. Chateau O’Brien is located in Markham, Virginia, and is one of the few Virginia producers to grow and produce a varietal Tannat. As a matter of fact, Tannat is their flagship red wine – made in a classic dry and late harvest style. Chateau O'Brien also grows and produces Cabernet Franc, which is one of the state's most widely planted red wine grape varieties. Overall, 2007 was a good to very good growing season for Virginia grape farmers. It was warm-to-hot and fairly dry, allowing producers to make riper and fuller wines than in normal years. The 2007 Cabernet Franc Cellar Collection more or less reflects this.
