I think the stain is a 95% match. It may be have a little too much sheen to it and be a little brown compared to the cherry cabinets. That is coming from a perfectionist, and only I would say that - everyone else who has seen it said they thought the shelves were OEM. I took a door off a cabinet into Home Depot to match it up.
I'd also recommend that you get the veneer strips to put on the front edge of the plywood shelves so it adds a wood grain look vs the layered plywood look. I did that and it makes them look OEM also.
Here are the two pictures of the stain and the wood veneer strips.
