This is very unique oil made from the French Picholine olive variety grown in cool, coastal California. It is quite bitter but is also very fruity and pungent, so the balance is good. It has a nice mix of nutty in general, almond specifically, and
buttery, ripe fruit flavors. Dominating the flavor, though are primarily the characteristics of strong dark-green herbs, with green apple, mint, cinnamon, woodiness and chili pepper.
The complex balance of mellow and green fruit flavors make this olive oil ideal for roasting eggplants, adding to warm lentil and bulgur salads, dressing salads, or pairing with Seasons smoked paprika as the perfect finish for hummus
