Perry Creek Winery Reaches New Heights of Taste with Debut of Pinnacle

Posted on April 19, 2017

FAIR PLAY, CA – Perry Creek Winery, a top-tier producer of high altitude wines in El Dorado County, introduces Pinnacle as the latest addition to its collection of premium varietals. Pinnacle is a perfect combination of the smooth, robust flavors of blackberry and plum paired with the distinct aromas of chocolate and smoke. Aged for more than two years in French Oak, the 2013 Pinnacle is a handcrafted blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petite Sirah.

“We’re very excited to debut our new wine label for wine lovers all over the world,” said Dieter Juergens, Owner of Perry Creek Winery. “Perry Creek strives to be at the forefront of our industry by consistently producing premium, high quality wines for the discerning palate, and Pinnacle is no different. It’s a luscious wine that highlights the more unique offerings of El Dorado County.”

Pinnacle uses 2013 vintage-provided grapes of exceptional quality that give it a spicy complexity and incredible depth of flavor. The wine is also produced at a higher altitude which adds to its distinct flavor, texture and richness. In addition to Pinnacle, Perry Creek produces various varietals under its Altitude, Cobra and Zinman labels.

“Our location provides such a unique component to the flavors and blend of our wines, especially the new Pinnacle label,” added Scott Johnson, Perry Creek Winemaker. “We’re at a huge advantage because we benefit from El Dorado County’s unique topography and personality, and are able to incorporate innovative techniques to showcase wines that match the character of the region.”
