Blending Zinfandel


My Zin this year is just finishing malo after a two-week fermentation. I even drained off 25% of the juice to help concentrate flavors. But the taste & color right now are a bit thin, so I'm thinking I'll need to blend. Anyone have any luck blending specifically with Malbec (the other grape I'm doing)? The Malbec is just starting fermentation, but appears to be more the style of the Zin I was hoping for.

I imagine a Malbec/Zin blend would be great, but I've never done it.
winepress.us is getting a lot more traffic than this group. You might want to post your question there, if you haven't already blended these wines.
