Die Weine von Paul Hobbs stammen von sieben Weinbergen in Sonoma County und von fünf im Napa Valley. Rebsortentechnisch konzentriert sich Paul auf die großen, edlen Gewächse Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah und Chardonnay. Eine minimalinvasive Kellertechnik ist sein Zaubermittel. Mehrfaches Auslesen am Sortiertisch, Spontangärung und keine Schönung oder Filtration ergeben schließlich die Weine, die Paul Hobbs haben möchte. Sein größter Fan ist sein Vater und wahrscheinlich gleich danach folgt Robert M. Parker. Der Pinot Noir von Paul Hobbs hatte es Parker im Jahr 2010 besonders angetan: Er adelte diesen Wein als einen der sechs besten Weine des Jahres. Sie erhalten einen wunderbaren tiefdunklen, seidig-weichen und geschmeidigen Tropfen, mit Noten von Himbeeren, Karamel. Lavendel und auch Kardamom, der von einem perfekten Holzeinsatz profitiert. Die Säure ist hier perfekt ausbalanciert und das mineralische Finish verweilt noch lange am Gaumen.

Parker (Wine Advocate): 93 Punkte für den Jahrgang 2013Hobbs, who has such a brilliant track record, also excels in Pinot Noir. While he uses multiple clones, he tends to have a preference for the Calera clone as opposed to the Dijon selections, a sentiment shared by increasing numbers of top Pinot Noir specialists in Northern California. His 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River offers loads of black cherry, raspberry and sassafras notes intermixed with some earth and tobacco leaf. It is full-bodied, opulent, and just a lusty, heady Pinot Noir that is actually fairly priced. Drink now-2022.
Launched with the summer '04 award-winning best-seller Brooklyn Noir, Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies. Each book is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the geographical area of the book. Original stories by: Lena Eltang, Sergei Nosov, Alexander Kudriavstev, Andrei Kivinov, Julia Belomlinsky, Natalia Kurchatova, Ksenia Venglinskaya, Eugene Kogan, Anton Chizh, Vladimir Berezin, Andrei Rubanov, and others. St. Petersburg boasts to have the strongest spirit of all Russian cities, and indeed the dark metaphysics of this city captivate tourists and locals alike. When you think of St. Petersburg noir, some of the greatest literary names immediately spring to mind - Alexander Pushkin, Nikolay Gogol, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. Modern day St. Petersburg lavishly offers the scenery and conditions for true noir stories, and the writers in St. Petersburg Noir succeed in concocting their own worlds within this city with stories ranging from mystical to outwardly grotesque. Within this collection, you'll meet characters who populate the narrow streets and unlit inner yards in the vast historical center winking at ghosts from pages of Dostoevsky's novels (Nutcracker); you'll hear of criminal activities settled behind the locked doors of magnificent palaces and museums (The Witch Hour and The Last Skinhead); and you'll follow the path of a police officer on his first day of duty maddeningly chasing a doppelganger... of a corpse (The First Duty). 1.

For readers of Elmore Leonard and Dennis Lehane, a South Florida noir from the bestselling author of Louisiana Power & Light. On Christmas Eve in Eden, Florida, Wylie "Coyote" Melville, therapist and forensic consultant, is summoned to a horrific crime scene. Five members of the Halliday family have been brutally killed.

As Wylie begins his own investigation with the help of his friend Bay Lettique - a poker playing sleight-of-hand artist with links to the Everglades County underworld - he discovers a web of corruption involving the police union, Ponzi-scheming lawyers, county politicians, and the Russian mob.
