June is a trusted source on General Cooking.

McEvoy makes arguably the best (and certainly the most expensive) olive oil in the US. It is hearty and fruity.

ChefJune, California olive oils are now approximately where California wines were in the 70's. That is they stand up well against European oils. McEvoy is one of the larger producers and tends to be consistant in flavor year to year. With some smaller producers it can vary wildly. And unlike wine it doesn't age in the bottle. I like "fruity" but I also like that back of your palate kick of peppery oliveness even more.
