I came up with a trick recently : to restore a glass of day old wine : pour in half a shot of port. Day old wine gets more acidic, a bit nasty; the sweetness of the port calms that down, it just sort of tastes like a nice rich wine. I guess it's similar to "fortified wine" which is awful. (one of my worst pet peeves at restaurants is when they try to pass off day old bottles of wine; cheap bastard restaurants do it all the time to save money, if they don't sell a bottle in a night they keep it for the next night, sometimes for multiple days; when you're paying $8 for a glass of wine that's only $8 for the bottle in a store, I want a fresh freaking glass. Oh, and don't bring me stale bread you freaking cheap bastards).
