Last year, I did one of the Amador County Petite Sirah Zinfandel LE kits from Winexpert, and I thought it was one of the best reds that I've made so far. However, I'm down to 5 bottles, and I was interested in trying to recreate this blend, and I was wondering if anyone has tried this yet. Winexpert does have the CA Zinfandel Shiraz kit, but it's only a 10L kit, so I'm worried it will be a little lighter in body than the LE kit. Mosti Mondiale has the Petite Syrah and Zinfandel kits, so since both are full strength, that would solve the body issue, but at $110/kit, that's an expensive experiment.

Also, for those that have made this kit, does anyone have notes on the quantity and type of oak used?
