It's only wine but I like it

Deeply coloured as one would expect from Carmenere. Lush and ripe, but thankfully, the green pepper/vegetal notes that often plague wines from this variety and kept in check. The oak seems a bit heavy handed but what is off-putting to me is this weird streak of acidity on the finish that seems artificial. Just not a balanced wine in my view. Picked up on sale for $16. Tasted nov 2019.
