2010 Gunrock Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This intense extra-virgin olive oil salutes the feisty spirit of campus mascot Gunrock, a thoroughbred brought to UC Davis in 1921 to help supply high-quality stock for the U.S. Army Cavalry.  To honor this campus icon, the UC Davis Olive Center selected a spirited blend of olive varieties from award-winning California olive oil producers along with olives grown at UC Davis.  Gunrock lovers will appreciate the fresh flavor and spicy finish this blend delivers.

Tasting notes:

Fresh, grassy, green banana and ripe olive flavors with a strong kick down the stretch.

Price: $12
