Jackson Estate Alisos Hills Viognier 2018
The Alisos Hills vineyards are a wild place – where mule deer, wild boar and bobcats roam the riparian corridors. The region is very similar in pro le to the rugged landscape of the Rhône Valley with its gravelly, sandy-loam soils on rolling hills covered in scrubby brush. This wild character shows up in the intense wines grown here and creates a depth of character that is unique inside California.
