Wow, what a wine! BTW, this is not to be confused with the wine of the same name without the "Elysian". Inky purple in color, shimmering bright and opaque. The nose has cassis, cedar, chocolate, graphite, tobacco, blueberries and just a hint of funk. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Rich, lush texture. This is young but delicious. On the palate, cassis, blueberries, chocolate, with some underlying leather. Deep and complex. Long finish. This will evolve and may even improve but it is so good today. Drink over the next twenty-five years. Great on its own, it will need big food to match it such as a Standing Rib Roast.
