    He's 65 years old and probably looking for an exit strategy.

      I have no doubt that's true. The issue, I should think, is not one of "an exit strategy," but rather WHO is making the entrance . . .

      Hmmm, so I buy a ton of Bordeaux futures and then my husband gives the wines good ratings and low and behold my built in "investor" base pays top dollar? I like it!
