wines change as they interact with oxygen, and often, when wine is first opened, it needs a moment to ‘breathe’ where it blows off reduction and begins to display ever more complex and delicious aromatics as it "opens."

if it appears your wine is not ready to "open" on command we call it "closed."  time to get a decanter or clean milk jug or mason jar or water pitcher and pour some breath into it.
