Olive Oil Reviews

April 29, 2012

This extra virgin olive oil from Quivira Vineyards & Winery of Healdsburg is their second release and made from the olive trees on their Wine Creek Ranch estate.  Traditional stone wheel crushing is used in the extraction of the oil from the olives and the results are amazing.  If you have never experienced top shelf olive oil, this is one to seek.  This 375 ml bottle has an incredible green color with a copper edge that is beautiful and inviting.  The nose is drawn to aromas of fresh spring greens, crisp asparagus, grass and an earthy sweetness that can be best described as a clear, spring morning with a wet dew.  The flavors of this  lightly tangy and mildly spicy olive oil are full, light and refreshing.
