May be your sauce was overcooked. May be you caramelized the onions. May be the tomato paste is too much concentrated.

Define "cooked for a while"  bolognese can be cooked till it's brown so maybe you overcooked it as mentioned.  The sugar in the tomato paste could have caramelized.  Bottom line is: How did it taste?

You browned the onion and garlic, then proceeded to overcook even the tomatoes on 2 hi a flame.

quite possibly, onions over browned and deglazed with wine. generally, you will find that if the onions caramelise to much, the wine will lift the onion caramel and leave it in the sauce. With a tomato based sauce, it shouldnt be so pronounced, but it will be there.
