Refinery29 Recommends ODE Natural Beauty

ODE was born out of McEvoy Ranch in Northern California, a place famed for its extra -virgin certified-organic olive oil. Unlike the bottles you pick up at the grocery store, the oil native to the region contains high levels of readily absorbable squalene, which dermatologists have found to be an extremely hydrating lipid similar to the skin's natural sebum. Because they harvest the olives before they're fully ripe, all ODE skincare formulations contain concentrated polyphenol, as well as vitamins A and E, and come locally sourced by way of the California coast.

For That Final Flourish, a Flavored Olive Oil

Last year, McEvoy Ranch released a well-received olive oil seasoned with crushed lemons local to its Petaluma, Calif., location. This year, they’ve added a companion, an oil made with jalapeños. For both, the lemons or chiles are crushed with the olives. The jalapeño oil has a delightfully grassy, vegetal allure, with moderate heat. The lemon oil gets a boost from black pepper. Both are seasoning oils, to gloss and flavor a dish just before serving.

The award-winning Marin County producer of certified organic olive oils just released its 2018 Lemon and Jalapeno olive oils.

2012 The Evening Standard Pinot Noir

“An excellent medium-bodied wine from an estate better known for its olives, this is dark in color but with a lighter, tawny rim. The complex aromas combine sweet baking spices with ample cherry and berry notes. Flavors kick in with juicy strawberry, dark cherry and subtle shadings of nutmeg and wood smoke. The texture is plush and almost soft, and the taste is warmly luxurious.”

Editor’s Choice
2011 Red Piano Mediterranean Blend

“This is a really fun dry wine with a distinctive black-pepper streak running from the aroma to the finish. It's medium bodied, on the lean side in texture, like pomegranate in terms of fruit flavors, firmly tannic and well-balanced. It should make a great pairing with steak au poivre.”
