Bernard Magrez is to begin a joint venture with a leading Japanese wine maker, Yuji Aruga of Katsunuma Winery is located in Yamanashi, about an hour outside of Tokyo. It is one of the few Japanese wineries to use grapes grown in its own vineyards to make its wines Katsunuma is the site of a vineyard growing Koshu grapes on a gentle Fuji mountain slope. Rounded, pure and fruity intensity on the nose. The palate is very fruity with flavors of lemon, grape-fruit. Some sweetness filling, white fruit on the palate



Bernard Magrez Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 Napa Valley, California

Cépage Cabernet-Sauvignon 
78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot. Very sweet, aromatic blackcurrant fruit nose with a lovely floral lift. Lively aromatics. The palate is very ripe and sweet with high alcohol apparent, but also lovely pure, focused fruit. Ripe and sweet, and quite delicious, but the alcohol is a bit of a problem. Lovely purity, though

La Bienvenida 2004  Casa Magrez  Mendoza, Argentina
Sweet, pure, focused nose with some lush blackberry fruit and floral aromatics. Just a hint of soy sauce, too. The palate is concentrated and lush with pure, sweet dark fruits and some elegance alongside the focus and presence. Very ripe (15.5% alcohol) but still in balance.
