Thomas Rivers Brown

Thomas Rivers Brown has become one of the most sought-after consulting winemakers in Napa Valley, making high-end Cabernet for 15 different labels at the Black Sears and Outpost wineries on Howell Mountain, with clients like Schrader and Maybach. There is even a Thomas Rivers Brown method—a non-interventionist style that eschews technology and, he says, "all those elements that contribute to sameness."

Bottle to seek out: Luscious 2009 Maybach Materium Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Pairing: Grilled Texas Rib Eye
