Experience, Culture, Age and other factors influence sensory perception

Wine competitions: many wineries continue trust them implicitly, especially the international competitions where thousands of wines from around the world are entered. The judges who taste them also come from many different countries. All of the judges are professionals: winemakers, sommeliers, buyers or wine journalists. However, their personal and cultural backgrounds are different. So the question is: is it also possible that their perceptions of wine are different?
