Vegetable Bolognese over Polenta
This cabernet is rife with the richness of Rutherford dust. It is packed with many layers, echoed by the layers of flavor in this vegetable Bolognese. The mushrooms, eggplant, and herbs bolster the earthy, dusty undertones, while the sweetness of the carrots and tomatoes and salinity of the capers and olives bring out vibrancy and bright, ripe fruit flavors of tart cherry and raspberry. Creamy polenta tames youthful tannin, allowing complexity to emerge even more readily.
