DOJO CUTS' Pieces (Best of Dojo Cuts):
DOJO CUTS, an Australian-based soul and funk ensemble, has been capturing hearts and dance floors since 2009. Led by the powerful vocals of Roxie Ray, the band delivers a compelling mix of retro-inspired grooves and melodies that pay tribute to the golden era of soul music. Pieces (Best of Dojo Cuts) is a culmination of their finest works and features 12 tracks that range from heart-wrenching ballads to infectious, uptempo tunes guaranteed to heal your hurt.
Some standout tracks on this best-of compilation include the emotive "I Don’t Want To Wait" and the irresistibly groovy "Take From Me." Each song showcases the band's ability to craft timeless music that bridges the gap between classic soul and contemporary R&B, creating a sound that resonates with both new and old fans alike.
The 2017 Colorado Petit Verdot:
To complement DOJO CUTS' soulful tunes, we've selected a bold and sophisticated 2017 Colorado Petit Verdot. This red wine is known for its intense, deep color and complex flavor profile. With aromas of dark fruit, violet, and a hint of vanilla, the Petit Verdot offers an opulent sensory experience that will enchant your palate.
The palate reveals flavors of blackberry, plum, and subtle spice, underscored by soft tannins and a lush, lingering finish. This full-bodied wine is the perfect accompaniment to rich, flavorful dishes such as braised short ribs, herb-crusted lamb, or a decadent dark chocolate dessert.
