In brief: Red wine's pros/cons

A mIxed blessing: too much can raise blood pressure & the risk of certain cancers, while too little & you may not achieve a lowered risk of heart disease & benefits in type 2 diabetes.
In a 2-year study, diabetics adherent to a Mediterranean diet + 5 ounces of red wine daily had a 9.8% increase in good HDL cholesterol than white wine or water drinkers. Red wine has 13x more resveratrol than white.

In brief: No

Red wine is very good for you in moderation.
It contains resveratrol which has been linked to numerous health benefits including: prevention against cardiovascular disease, maintaining memory and preventing dementia, improving sleep, helping fight against cholesterol. All of this in combination with a Mediterranean diet high in omega three fatty acids, fish, vegetables have been shown to help.
