TASTING NOTES
This limited production early Kalamata has savory vegetal notes of arugula, Romaine lettuce leaf and green tea. Unique distinctive flavor and astringency. The combination of picking the fruit at an extremely low green maturity index (early harvest) and minimal processing resulted in the high phenol content and extraordinarily high and healthful Oleocanthal properties (of 292ppm).

TASTING NOTES
Mild intensity. Considering that this was a very difficult year for the California harvest, our partner producers worked very hard to secure oil for us this year. Stores have been inquiring about California oils and we are excited that we can add this to our list. This is lovely baking oil, perfect for confectionary inspirations. This Arbequina has a creamy almond, berry center and a delicate pepper finish….a crowd pleaser for those that enjoy mild oils.
