Especially in the professional tasting and description of wines, many factors play a role. These include not only appropriate training and experience, but also rules and framework conditions (environment) defined for this purpose in order to be able to make an assessment that is as objective as possible. See on the complex of topics under the keywords:

Wahrnehmungs-Schwelle - Geschmack (Zunge) und Geruch (Nase)

100-point system to triangle test

Bottle variance to open tasting

Awards up to vertical tasting

Perception threshold until re-tasting

Degustation - Verkostungstisch, Entsorgung
