Tipping Etiquette

I need some advice/input.

I have a very special occasion coming up. My husband and I will be going out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. The dinner will cost around $120 per person. However, on this occasion I have my eye on an extremely special bottle of wine I would like to treat us to. The wine will cost approximately $2,500. How would I tip for this?

Normally we order a bottle of wine that is around $40 or so and include that in the tip. But when the wine is so very expensive, compared to the cost of the food what is customary?

Thanks in advance!
