Crazy Idea - Red Wine Alfredo? With Lobster?

So my boyfriend and I are celebrating our anniversary tonight, of course I'm in charge of dinner.. he has been going on about wanting lobster for a while now (I honestly detest seafood) but I was thinking if I put together a pasta I could simply add some poached lobster to his and leave it out of my own.
Now I know by all the rules seafood (and lobster especially) should be paired with a white wine, but we both prefer to drink red. I had the idea of making an alfredo with a red wine base as opposed to white so we could enjoy a red wine with the meal.. but I'm worried about the meal ending up a total flop. Has anyone tried this? Will I ruin the taste of the lobster by going with red? any input would be much appreciated!
