About California Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a natural, delicious, unprocessed and healthy oil that has been enjoyed for thousands of years. It is well known for its abundance of antioxidants and its ability to enhance health and longevity. In general, EVOO falls into one of the following categories:
Delicate: A delicate EVOO is made with olives harvested in the later stages of ripeness. The oil will have a smooth and buttery taste, you’ll notice a fruitiness in the nose, no bitterness at all, and a slightly peppery finish.
Medium: A medium EVOO is made with a combination of olives harvested in both the early and mid-stages of harvest. This oil offers a fruity taste, a grassy scent, and a peppery/spicy finish.
Robust: A robust EVOO offers bold flavor, a balanced bitterness, and a very prominent peppery finish. You’ll also enjoy a fruity scent to the nose with this oil.
