How much is a dinner for two at the French Laundry?

I'm considering making a pilgrimage to the French Laundry
in January, and was hoping someone could give a me a realistic estimate of the total cost (food, wine, anything else?) for dinner for two.

On the web page I've found the meal prices (I'm budgeting for the $150 tasting menu), but the big variable (I think) will be wine. Since neither my girlfriend nor I know much about wine, we'd want to take the sommelier's recommendations as much as possible, but how much is this likely to cost us? Most of my online research has told me that eating there is expensive (no shit) and that it's worth it, but my google fu has failed to find me any good estimates of the total cost to expect.
