You're right of course, great wine in any style can be balanced but unfortunately, many wineries are adopting "balance" itself (or what goes by that name) as their style--i.e., wines that don't express too much of anything. Unfortunately, the wine world has become a slave to fashion, chasing the latest trend, rather than making the best possible wine the fruit will allow. A great wine--like a classic saville row suit--whether overripe, parker-style or green--will never go out of style. I love wine in all styles. What I don't like is wine trying to be something it's not. In the past that's been chasing the fruit-bomb style, now the winds are blowing in the other direction, but it's all the same thing.
