Reader seeks advice...

From time to time, people write NBS asking for advice. Sometimes, we respond.
Today's answered question pertains to the fruit of the vine. A reader asks:
I have this tendency of opening a bottle of red wine for a drink, or two. Or, opening a bottle with a friend, but we don't finish the bottle. Maybe another glass the next night. Anyway, my question is, if I put the cork back in it after I open it, how long is a good time frame for the wine to stay half-way decent before going bad? A few days? A week? Longer? This is a serious question.
Give it a few days and then use it for cooking. Makes a great marinade. Or, do as NBS does, and dump it on a bowl of frosted flakes. Yum!
