Chilean Cabernet or Syrah with Beef Stifado?

Tried the Beef Stifado from Jamie Does.  We tentatively tested a Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 from Costco.  The red wine vinegar in the sauce totally dulled the wine, so we set it aside.  We then went for a Gran Tarapaca Syrah 2007 from Sunday Times Wine Club.  This was much better at coping with the wine vinegar and the spicy, fruity Syrah went well with the allspice berries and tomatoes in the sauce.
