are you asking about flavor? and in terms of sg readings? flavor comes from the grape/fruit etc.....the sg that you finish at is more like an adjective is to a noun...meaning that you could have a red wine at an sg of .998 and another at 1.02 same grape/fruit medium ( the noun) but reflected differently by the different sg ( the adjective)

Just was wondering if it made sense. an interesting article either way.

It shows how critical the SG number is for when you are backsweetening. That's what I got out of it.:b

I take it to be a guide. Based on what? Probably someones experiences. Kinda like saying 32 degrees is cold.

That to me is personel preference. Although I did agree with a few I didnt with others. I thk a light dry wine would be better towards the slightly higher sg and the big full bodied should be rock bottom for instance.
