My choice is the fuse block because the alternator powers the loads and maintains battery voltage. The load on the #4 wire running to the battery is only battery maintain current whereas the larger loads are at the fuse block.
This assumes that the battery is in good condition.
FYI- The alt. sense wire has no load to speak of thus no voltage drop. It is only used as a reference for regulation of the alt. output.
