Stonewall Kitchen – Matthew Becker



Thank you to Carla Snow and Nicole McShane for preparing diner for our event.  Matthew Becker of Morgan Stanley was proud to invite guests to this event at Stonewall Kitchen.  The menu of the evening was three courses, starting with Ceviche of Sea Scallops with Fresh Artichokes, paired with Chateau Miraval Cotes De Provence Rose, France.  The wine has delicate aromas of white fruits, just picked strawberries and floral notes.  It has a refreshing acidity, thaks to the altitude of the vineyards, and a long round finish.  The second course was Julia’s Steak Diane, Duchess Potatoes and Saute’ed Cherry Tomatoes with Garlic Butter and Herbs over Wilted Spinach.  This main course was paired with Stark-Conde Syrah, Stellenbosch, South Africa.  This wine is un-fined and unfiltered, so the rich fruit flavors shine right through; it has a big raspberry, and mocha aromas and flavors leading to the bright finish.  The dessert was a Chocolate Mousse Cake, Macerated Raspberries and Mascarpone Whipped Cream!  This course was paired with a Brachetto D’Acgui, Vigne Rosa Regale, Italy.  This wine was perfect with the Chocolate Mousse Cake, very red and sweet, sparkling, from Brachetto grapes grown in Castello Banfi’s thirty acre La Rosa vineyard, with strawberry and blueberry flavors.  Matthew Becker
