Jamaican black cake calls for chopped dried fruit that has been marinated in Manischewitz sweet wine. Here is one recipe I found. http://eatjamaican.com/recipes/black-cake-recipe.html

You could use it to make a granita but make sure to add a sweet herb like tarragon or a bay leaf or ginger to balance out the flavors. In fact many recipes that call for Mirin can actually work quite well with a little "heavy grape concord."

You could use it for sangria, as suggested above, or wine spritzers for folks who don't like to drink much. But y ou can also stick it in a corner of your liquor cabinet for next year. It keeps forever.

Use it to poach pears - just reduce the sugar to compensate for the wine's sweetness.

Sorbet.

Use it to sweeten an ice cream base. Also look for a bundt cake recipe containing Manischewitz--my mother makes it occasionally, and it's actually really delicious.

Assuming ham is OK, wonder if it would work, simmered down, as a braising liquid for a ham, with herbs. Given the sugar content in the wine, kind of like the southern recipe that uses Coca Cola (regular, not diet).
 
Try making a sangria! Fresh citrus slices and and a little triple sec in a carafe left to marry for about 4 hours in the fridge. Why not? And if you don't want to use triple sec just use a little OJ.
