    B. Ferments erratically (D. All of the above)

    Pinot Noir is difficult to grow for a number of reasons:

    -Spring frosts kill the vine

    -The child vines often produce fruit very different from their parents

    -Every type of serious vine sickness is common in Pinot Noir

    -Is a carrier for a couple of insects that can destroy an entire vineyard in 3 years or less

    -It is hard to ferment

    -The vines are so small that they often do not protect the fruit from birds

    Winemakers love it for exactly these reasons.
