Drinking Wine the Next Day

I left about half of last night's bottle on my kitchen counter. I used my VacuVin to remove air from the bottle - but the characteristics of the wine change nonetheless. The smokiness of the wine is almost completely gone, replaced instead by dark licorice and mocha. Overall the wine is a little more challenged on the nose, but the mouthfeel of the wine has become even smoother over the past 24 hours. A lot of black and white pepper showed up on the wine overnight - a very nice change.
