Defrost the cherries and reserve the juice. Pour the juice into a measuring cup. Add as much of the cherry or cranberry juice you need to the juice from the bag of cherries to make one cup. Place in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Dissolve gelatin in boiling liquid. Add ice cream by spoonfuls. Stir until melted and remove from heat. Stir in wine and lemon juice. Pour into a bowl and chill until partially congealed. Halve the cherries. Fold into gelatin mixture and spoon into pre-baked pie shell. Refrigerate until firm.
