Is it a myth that chilled wine can not be brought to room temp?

It is often stated by wine experts that once a wine has been chilled it can not be brought back up to room temperature even if unopened without "ruining" the taste.  Is this really true or just a myth?  What would be the chemistry that would explain why chilling to say 50 deg F then letting it warm back to 70 degF would change the taste?  My wine tasting skills are not up to testing this.
