Bring the Pinot Noir to a boil in a pot with the cinnamon, cloves, orange zest, and sugar. When it comes to a boil, add oranges and apples and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat immediately. Add the other bottle of wine, all berries and put in the fridge overnight. The next day when ready to serve, taste (add sugar if needed) and add Canada Dry. Put a little of the fruit in a wine glass and pour wine over it. You can also add Watermelon and grapes if in season.
