You're wrong, Dude. Red all the way!
I had an amazing one with an amazing steak a few months back. It was then that I discovered that the more you pay for wine the nicer it actually gets! I honestly never tasted the difference before. But red. I'm sure if I had a nice white it wouldn't offend my taste buds or anything... but if I had to buy some. Red.
I heard/read that red and white wine is made from the same grape. The initial light squeeze makes white wine, harder squeeze gives blush, and the real hard squeeze breaks the skin cells and pits of the grapes and gives red wine after fermentation. Breaking the skin cells adds color and the pits add tannic acid to the red wine, giving it a harsher flavor.
Red wine for me! I find that the only red wine where the price makes quite a difference is a "Merlot", their distinguishing fruity taste can suffer from cheap. My favorite red wine is most any California "Cabernet Sauvignon", where actually the cheaper ones taste better to me, and seem to have a little less tannin in them.
