Aerating wine can make a world of difference, even for cheaper wines. While the preferred method is to leave in a decanter for a few hours before serving, seriously speed up the process by placing it in the blender for 30 seconds.
If you're not going to finish the bottle within a few days of opening, drop small marbles into the bottle to raise the level of the wine to the top, which will leave less room for oxygen to sit and spoil your wine. This will help keep it fresh for about a week or so.
If you have part of a bottle left and don't anticipate drinking it soon, you can fill ice cub trays then freeze the wine for up to a month or two. You can use the cubes to chill wines, to thaw out for cooking, or to blend into wine slushies.
This will enhance the sweetness and make it a little more enjoyable. Plus, post-drink snack!
