I found this 2004 report (Prepared for the California Association of Winegrape Growers). If I get ambitious, I'll try to find something more recent.

Some highlights from the report:

....

In any given year the domestic grape juice concentrate industry does not produce enough product to supply the market demand. Imported grape juice concentrate and other juice concentrates, both domesticand imported, are used as substitutes

....

the price of imported grape juice concentrate, primarily from Argentina, and the prices of alternative juice concentrates such as apple, pear and pineapple combine to act as a constraint on the prices domestic processors can offer for grapes and remain competitive in this increasingly global market

....

In 2004, the United States imported over $69 million worth of grape juice and concentrate–an increase of about 79 percent from the previous year of $39 million–as both prices and quantities increased.
....

The United States exported more than $54 million worth of grape juice to the world market in 2004.
....

South Korea reduced grape juice imports from the United States by around 37 percent, from more than $9 million in 2003 to around $6 million in 2004. Over the same period Argentina reported significant increased shipments to South Korea and Japan
....

Total fruit juice imports declined slightly in 2004 to around $825 million, down some 0.65 percent from the 2003 level of $830 (Table 5). Apple juice commands the largest market share of value among U.S. imports, reaching almost $316 million (38.3 percent) in 2004, followed by orange juice with a value of around $156 million (18.9 percent). The share of orange juice in total imports declined from the 2003 level by 41 percent, as did cherry juice (-18.2 percent) (Figure 8). Imports of grapefruit juice increased significantly from the 2003 level, due in part to decreased supplies resulting from hurricane-related crop damage, reaching around one percent of total juice imports of $11 million. Imports of grape juice also increased, reaching $69 million, along with increases in prune juice imports to around $4 million in 2004.

The PDF document is here, complete with tables:

If you can't view PDF docs, here is the google HTML cache page, but it doesn't have the tables and graphs, and also seems to be missing a considerable amount of the text:
