Well, maybe, maybe not. Next time, don't be in a rush to do anything. Let it sit at least 60 days before doing anything else. That will really help. You can rack in 60 days if you have lees, but otherwise it is best left alone to finish up and clear so that the yeast will fall to the bottom.

Don't worry about bubbles- just keep it out of the light in a cool place (but not cold, say 18-21C) and check it in 60 days. Then rack to a new vessel, top up (but with wine, or water) and check it again in 60 days. It might be ready to stabilize by then.
