The only time color really matters to me is if I am trying to figure out what kind of wine it is. Color can also help you figure out what is the predominate grape varitey in a blend or meritage. Also color is very important for determining the soundness of a wine. Often times poorly stored wines (wines that have oxodized) have turned a rust color or start to become brownish.

The quality of a wine's color will tell you how "alive" it is - there should be a brilliance of a white or a red that is still drinking. The color can also help you draw conclusions about the winemaking techniques used.
