I have a question about the recipe "New Mother's Magic Elixir (Lamb Stew)" from MrsWheelbarrow. /What kind of wine variety is Cahors? I'm in Australia and I haven't come across it, wondering whether a decent Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon would work? Something else?

Cahors is a chewy, rough red – very peasant-y. A Shiraz sounds like a great alternative.

Cahors is its own variety, a rustic red from Languedoc-Roussillon in France. You'll get a different-but-delicious result with Shiraz.
