Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium bodied and fruit forward with lots of tart cherry and candied cranberry and that signature earthiness typical of the varietal. Lots of intensity on the palate with a refined elegance and overall polished presentation. Well done.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby with a garnet hue with aromas of backberry, strawberry, ripe raspberry, earth, wet leafy forest floor, leather and minerals. Also some hints of smoke and gaminess.
Flavours brighten up into the palate with raspberry, tart bing cherry, tobacco leaves and cigar box with loads of minerals and cedar sprigs with some fresh and fruity notes. Medium acidity, medium body light finish. Pretty nice Pinot from niagara. Fresh and fruity with a pleasant mineral finish. Pair with duck breaks, pork tenderloin or grilled rainbow trout. 88 points, November 2017
16 Mile Cellar Rebel (2012) is a medium-bodied cherry, cranberry, cool-climate Pinot Noir from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. The grapes for this wine were handpicked from three Niagara vineyards and the wine was aged in French oak barrel for over 18 months. - Community Wine Reviews
