How long will opened Marsala last?

I occasionally use Marsala wine for cooking. One of my favorites is a recipe for Marsala mashed sweet potatoes. The problem is that it calls for a mere tablespoon. Once opened, how long can I keep Marsala wine before I will not want to cook with it anymore?

Crankin..I'm thinking it's one of the fortified wines, so it will last a very, very long time.....

It will last months. UB is right, it's fortified with added alcohol so will last much longer than regular wine.

I have never had it go bad on me and I do not use it very often at all.

I don't know a time frame, but "Long." My current bottle is at least a year old, I am sure, and it still tastes fine.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Okay good. I just didn't want to have to throw away bottles that are like 90% full. Thanks
