PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Eagles fans: This is for you.

But only if you're willing to pay $49.99 plus tax for the California red wine blend that commemorates the Eagles historic Super Bowl victory over the Patriots. 

The pricey limited edition bottles, called Championship Red, are now available. The red wine blend, produced by Mano's Wine in Kansas City, Missouri, combines several varieties of California grapes.

Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board spokesman Sean Kelly said the bottle looks great and is made to last. 

"It's actually deep-etched and hand-painted," he described. "It depicts '52' in Roman numerals for the Eagles big game victory. It's a heavy bottle and definitely something that's collectible."

The celebratory wine was released last week in small batches. 

"In stores where it has been available, we're hearing reports of very strong sales already," Kelly added. "They've gone through several cases in some of the stores that received it early."

Shelves should be stocked in full in the five-county area by Wednesday, but get it while you can. 

"We're expecting it to go relatively quickly," he said. "But the die-hard fans who head out to stores should be able to find them for a while before they sell out."
