It is Giorgio Furioso’s objective, and hence that of the Furioso Vineyards Team, to make the best Oregon Pinot Noir.
La Linea Furioso – The Furioso Line – is our premier, barrel-select label, and is among the best Oregon Pinot Noir available. Its elegant, refined, and aromatically complex nature creates a distinct and unique experience.
La Linea 2014 was produced using free run extraction and “lightly directed” while aging 10 months in French oak. We used 65% old barrels, adding 35% new to give the wine extra body. Our Head of Wine Jared Etzel repeatedly tested the wine, eventually selecting 6 barrels most representative of the cellar to carry our flagship label. The wine was bottled in September 2015.
While this is a wine you can enjoy now, the complexity of its character will continue to evolve in your cellar.
Taste La Linea Furioso. We are certain you’ll agree that is one of the best Oregon Pinot Noirs you will ever discover.

“Spice comes up in the nose and on the palate, punching up the fruit and bringing with it a nutty barrel-inflected base. Black cherry and blue plum cover the core fruit flavors, with a lovely sweet concentration dead center in the mid-palate. This young wine is finely crafted and clearly built to age. Drink 2018 through 2028.”
