Plain ole boiled linseed oil makes a nice finish on cherry. Followup with some thinned polyurethane for a more glossy finish.

I also finish cherry with the mentioned cherry Minwax stain but before I stain it I put on a coat of Seal Coat (shellac base) diluted three parts alcohol to one part Seal Coat. This initial wash coat almost eliminates the blotching often experienced when staining cherry. Follow up with a coat of full strength seal coat the three coats of diluted poly (diluted one part poly to one part mineral spirits.)
