Wine good vs bad

So I HATE when I try a new wine and HATE it.

This first one was delightful. Was brought to me as a gift, so no idea from where or how much.

I know next to nothing about Italian wines, so I don't usually go for them. This one was good. The other one, not so much.

Ruggero di Classo
Nero d'Avola 2007

From the bottle: "100% of grapes from South-western Sicily. Berry character with soft tannis and a lightly jammy finish"

Fruity, jammy, a little sweet. The description describes it well.

This one, not so good:

Chateau St Jean
California Merlot

Also a gift. Too dry, too herby/earthy.
