I have a question about the recipe "Short Rib Ragu" from Minimally Invasive.
I forgot to pick up Red Wine yesterday when I went into town! Can I substitute a good merlot?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I just made a similar short rib ragu (for 50 people) and I used some merlot , cab franc as well as Cabernet. (left overs from our tastings) They are varietals of wine that are used in a Bordeaux blend and will work well in the sauce.

dymnyno's answer is beautiful, and typically informative. On the soft side, I'd say use anything that doesn't require another trip to town.
