I tasted the 2001 Kay Brothers Amery Shiraz, actually the store was comparing it to the 1998 which Parker thought it was similar to.

I far more agree with Parker's 91-93 point rating. I was a nice rich dark fruited Shiraz.

WS87's said "Extremely earthy and vegetal." Wow, I didn't get that at all!

By the way, lots of WS reviews make absolutely no sense to me, whereas I can usually make sense of Parker's or Rovanni's.

HS was the WS reviewer, I guess if your palate is aligned with his rather than Parker's you might have a problem.

Still, I don't see why you shouldn't try one now, it seemed to be drinking nicely if you like your Shiraz young.

Here is my TN on the 2001

Kays 2001 Shiraz - Tasted May 2033

The wine was bottled about two months ago and was kindly opened by Colin for us to try, so it is totally shut down. On the palate the wine has good flavour intensity showing black berry, dark chocolate and liquorice. The body weight is ample, the consistency firms with a solid structure and a more than agreeable level of complexity. Like all Kays wine, it good honest well-made wine and good value to boot. Rated as Recommended *** for value at $22 it should peak around 2005 and is well worth buying. The wine should be released in the next few months.

If you want to read more reviews of Kays wine go to torbwine and search on the word kays.
