Music Pairing with Wines?

No Gravatar

Okay I am going to go out on a limb here but I think this is an interesting topic and I would love to hear from other wine folks.   Music can be a big part of your life just like wine.  It is a part of celebatory events, moments of solitude as well as times of focus during work, (working out, cleaning house, working on projects).   Like wine, your choice in music depends on your mood and the event.   I am curious if certain music enhances your wine experience?  So here is a scenario:

You are on your weekend and decide to have a glass of Chateau Montelena and listen to music.  What music do you gravitate to?  And what Montelena wine do you drink?

Oh by the way - For those of you who have an iPhone, here is a link to a free app that does just that – pairs wine with music.  The app is called Wine DJ.  http://www.winedj.com/
