I wouldn't say months, but a month for sure. They will last as long as any tawny once open. The wood aging oxidizes the wine to provide more stability once open.

Another thing worth trying is white port. Mix 1/2 white port with 1/2 tonic into a high ball glass with ice and garnish with either fresh mint or basil leaf. Great drink to start a night off with friends or alone!
