I once bought an elderberry wine kit from nichols Nursery It had dried elderberries in it and i think we poured boiling water over it.  It smelled wonderful at that point and made very nice wine.  On the strength of that i bought nova and york which are not Sambucas nigra but S. canadensis if i rember right.  They never smelled or tasted good enough for me to want to put in the effort to make wine or infact anything else out of them even thought as you said Lon they were bread for size and flavor.  I never did ask  Nichols what kind of elderberry was in the kits and I'm sure it's been far too long for them to know anymore.  I thoguht it might be S. nigra  just because it was so much better than my plants.
