You could do a simple pinot noir/cherry jelly. These measurements are approximations, but here's a start:

6 parts cherry juice
1 part pinot noir
4 parts sugar
1 parts apple jelly (or commercial pectin)

-Bring all to gentle boil until 221 degrees F is achieved (or check the set the ole fashioned way). Place in warm jars and seal.

Please let me respectfully comment on Foodshed's recipe.

The recipe, I'm sure is delicious. BUT, this jelly, like all others must be processed in a hot water canner for food safety issues.

After placing the jelly in jars. Place lid on scrupulously clean rim. Tighten bands until you feel resistance. Process in hot water canner for 10 minutes for pint jars. (Add about 1 minute per thousand foot elevation.)

Thanks for adding that Christina, left it out. Mario, here's a nifty chart with water bath canning times set at sea level for you to adjust by elevation:
