looks like what is known as an "(cold)air drained slope which reduces the chance of frost and winter (the cold air slides down slope and makes the lower areas colder). if it's a south or west facing slope will also get extra warmth in summer---sweet situation for certain crops like avocados or grapes for example.

USDA zone 9a (Sunset zone 5)
