Chez Ray Cabernet Sauvignon / Zinfandel Blend, 2011 - CZ11 and CZ11W

Today I'm blending four cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel components into a single CZ11 blend. 

The grapes are the following:

Lodi "Super Cab VSP" Cabernet Sauvignon - Code CL11 (24.5 brix)
Paso Robles "Dos Robles" Cabernet Sauvignon - Code CP11 (25 brix)
Paso Robles "Dos Robles" Old Vine Zinfandel - Code ZP11 (26 brix)

There were four equal parts to the blend:  VSP Cabernet, Paso Robles Cabernet, Paso Robles Zin fermented warm, and Paso Robles Zin fermented cool.

They were created based on this recipe.  

A secondary blending, called CZ11W (meaning "warm"), is a combination I am building of equal parts Paso Robles Cabernet and Paso Robles Zin fermented warm.
