It is common for wines which have just been bottled to display smells not unlike hot plastic. These off smells dissipate over time. Wines which have been subjected to harsh conditions during shipment will also often go through periods of bottle sickness. Giving them time in your cellar will remedy the problem. Even a trip home from the store should be followed by a brief resting period prior to drinking.
