Splott Man it would depend on the acidity of the wine, ie "Cheap generic red Vin (extremely)Ordinaire might be a bit rich in the acids and taste a bit worse than a good burgundy, also even a GOOD young Chianti might be a bit crappy from one, I personally prefer Glass for wine so I can view the colour before that first heavenly sniff and then taste(oops! sorry I was Waxing lyrical there) but I personally would hesitate to drink my good Rioja out of it, if you need a "metal" wine drinking vessel it is often easy to pick up a half pint Silver tankard from markets or antique fairs fairly cheap and they are usually supposed to be OK, after all it is a Traditional vessel for drinking Champagne!!!
